I would like to add a Network Directory to a Library. I've come across this
link although I couldn't understand the following:
Create a local folder in the C:\Users\username\ directory. This can be named anything you want, so long as it is a valid directory name.
Add that folder into the library. Open the library from the menu bar, then click on the Includes: # locations link at the top. Click the Add button on the right side and select the folder you just created.
Delete the local folder that you created. DO NOT remove it from the library.
I first create a local folder in /Users/username
then I add a folder library and I click on includes
, when I click the Add
button the indexing option occurs ! I get thrown off track at the last set of instructions which are to delete the local folder that I've created
. I can't get to that stage because the networked folder needs to be indexed and the point of this technique is to not have to index the drive
On the same page there is this
program, it appears it wipes out your previous libraries which you've created, which is why I'm skeptical to use it. I'm hoping someone can help me get one or the other to work or has another solution to this ?
