    How to install to network driver?


    Hey

    When I try to install a program/direct to a program/direct to a database/etc/ I can only see local drivers. No network ones. How can I see network drivers? They are mapped and visible in "This PC" but they are not visible when I try to select them in drop down menus. This is using different software...

    Regards

    The word is Drives. Drivers are software Windows uses to work with various hardware.

    I Map a Folder on my NAS network-attached drives rather than the drive itself, haven't had a problem using Windows, Mac OS X and Linux accessing the same 2 drives. The name of the Folder I use is Public with subFolders for appropriate categories such as Downloads, Documents [for backup copies], etc.

    Hey

    Not sure that approach wont work for me. I need to map entire hdd and access it just the way I access local hdd.

    Another problem I have is that I can't just type D:\database\test.xx As windows just thow an error. I have to go via \\192.1681.10\D\database\test.xx

    Everything I need is in the Public Folder in File Explorer and is pretty much the whole drive. A program shouldn't need access to anything more than what is set for storing it's own user-created data files. The \\192.168.1.10 is your Network IP for the drive, mine are similar with only the last group being different. I usually don't need access to the root of the 2 drives. The only other Folders besides Public on my My Cloud NAS drives are TimeMachineBackup [for the Mac OS X] and the WDC SmartWare.

    Hey

    I'm sorry but that won't work in the world I live in. Where we need to manage huge amount of client/renders/etc/etc. Mapping driver and it behaving like in windows 7 is quite well... If we can't do that then we will never move to windows 10...

    I can't map a folder. It has to be a driver. It has to be fully accessible via any standard ways like c:/ c/ c\ c:\ etc etc. Otherwise we have issues with render software's. We can't go back and ask render developer for fixes to windows 10.

    Here are the disk visible on windows 10Click image for larger version.

    There is no //192.168.1.10/X disk

    Which mean we can not install our CGI software, we can not work. We can NOT use windows 10

    So yes... how the F do we get it to work ?!

    Here is explorer view. The driver is in correct place but not when trying to install software etc etc! Click image for larger version.
