Windows 7: Consistent folder path creation for network share?

26 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional (final) x64
Consistent folder path creation for network share?

Hi there,

just a quick question, which currently drives me crazy:

I use one Mozilla Firefox profile stored on my NAS plus (among others) the extension DragIt. I now have the problem, that when I created the path to the NAS (via Computer > context menu > "Add Network location") that I somehow created different paths on Windows Vista x32 and Windows 7 x64. One time (first at Vista) it was the IP address, then on 7 just the path name (somehow works, I don't understand it anyway...).

Now, DragIt didn't work. Ok, I changed all paths to the new 7 path (a mistake?), so they path is "\\name\nas\..." now. And I changed / deleted the link to it here at the Vista laptop. But now it still doesn't work!

Question: What did I do wrong (the paths look the same + correct!) or should I better just switch back to the IP address?

By the way, any idea why the profile usage (of FF) is so slow here at the Vista laptop? I have to admit, it works much better @the desktop PC, although it also has some 1 GHz more power. But shouldn't this be an issue of the LAN-connection (which is the same for both) than with the PC power?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Kind regards
