Windows 7: Areo preview blank for network documents

Areo preview blank for network documents

I noticed today that if I open up a document that is residing on a network drive, that in the aero peek, the document is not displayed just a white box with the application's icon inside.

Documents that are not on a network drive, peek just fine.

Anybody else noticed this?

hi SJHiker, welcome to sevenforums,

i've just quickly looked at some pictures and text files stored on my laptop - and aero peek shows the proper thumbnail here.

please fill in your system specs so we can see a bit more about your computer and os.

I think you are missing my question, in my case the documents (.pptx in this case) are stored on a network drive.

Additionally, if I open up a word doc on the network drive the aero peek works fine.

my laptop appears as a mapped network drive when i'm on my desktop.

i'm afraid i haven't got any pptx files to test with...is it only this filetype you are having this problem with?

and please tell us more about your hardware and os.

Only with .pptx, everything else so far is fine.
