    Mounting a Folder as shared network drive

    Hi there
    not sure if it's me or has W10 changed the way you mount network drives

    I used to be able to add say HDD2/Music as a "Network drive" on say Z. Now it seems I can only mount HDD2 as a network drive. (I.e top level directory rather than one of the subfolders - in this case a Music folder.).

    I can fix it by changing the SAMBA conf for one of the shares to XXX/music but I don't recall ever having to do that in the SAMBA conf.

    Maybe I'm just getting old !!! and it was always like that.

    I don't *think* it has changed (I could be wrong though). I've always put in \\<PCName>\<ShareName> since forever.
