For Windows OS (Vista, in my case), will squeezebox recognize music stored on different users on the same computer? In other words does all the music on a given computer have to be under 1 user name? Or does all music have to be under some shared path?

Sorry if this is a silly question. I've preordered a Touch and my wife is also interested in using it. Thanks in advance.

Hi

In XP you can usually access other user's folders unless they prevented that. You can still share it. So as long as the user that is running the server can access that folder you can put a shortcut to it and it will scan it. You will end up with one large library containing all music.
