Drive letters vs UNC revisited
Some time ago I asked about extendeding the 24 drive letter limit as I had run out of drive letters. The discussion evolved to one about a replacement OS.. WHS 1 IIRC, because I could use Drive extender, but that would not have addressed my need.
Using librarian I can create a number of libraries from objects on the network and I can create these using UNCs. This takes care of my needs when I'm opening or saving stuff via an application.
But what about at the desktop, when I want to "explore" my data.
Is there a way to replace the drive letter list in explorer? Is there a truly 64bit app that can show me my drives by UNC, or show me my libraries without the need for the second pane like windows explorer?
EDIT: I probably should comment that adding network places in Computer does almosst achieve what I want. I can create a network place for each "drive" and then unmap the drives. When used in conjunction with libraries I'm almost there. Only problem is, because network places are seen as folders, the total size, free space and percent full details cannot be shown. If there were a way to change that, then I'd have a workable solution.
