    How to have two music folders

    I need help - I have 2 music folders that I want my library to scan. How can I do this? I just want to use two sub-directories in the same folder.

    On Windows, just put a shortcut in the scanned one to the other. Similar policies work with Linux and Mac.

    Are the two music folders on the same HDD or on different machines on your network?

    As I was just about to ask the same question, I thought I'd tag onto the end of this thread.
    I have my music on 3 HDD, all on the same machine.
    I have added shortcuts to the 2 other HDD and put those SC's in the root of nthe scanned drive. I then told SS to rescan my music folders.
    Didn't work for me either :-(

    Ok,

    I've just uninstalled SS.
    Reinstalling, then scanning music files.

    Will report back the results.

    I recall having a problem accessing a HDD on a different machine on the network. The problem was related to starting SS as a service under win2k (don't ask me about XP). IIRC a service can't access another HDD across a network for security reasons. There was some trick required, and I'm sure I found it in the documentation somewhere, that enabled SS to start in a way that would allow it to access the other HDD. Anyway, once the trick was applied, the problem was cured.

    I know, this is a not very useful response, completely lacking in accurate info, but there is a simple cure. I just don't remember what it is. There, now I'm starting to ramble. Getting old sucks.

    How to have two music folders

    It's all to do with permissions. By default, a windows service runs
    under a local system account that doesn't have the required privileges.
    You need to edit the services properties and change the Log On account
    to a user who has access to the network (administrator would do it, but
    may not be the most secure choice).
