Windows Explorer and remote filesystems ( SMBFS )

Discussion in 'Windows Vista File Management' started by ??r Sigur?sson, Jun 12, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    When browsing remote filesystems on the Beta2 of Vista, I notice that not
    all folders show up.

    I have one directory with 305 subfolders. This hierarchy did show fine in
    XP, but in Vista I only get to see 126 folders of the 305 that where
    supposed to be available.

    What gives ?

    ( If the question arises then yes, I'm the owner of the directories :) )

    Same problem, it doesn't seem to like certain folder names, for remote shares
    that is, local folders with the same name appear fine. Also, the "missing"
    folders are accessible if you type the location directly into the address
    bar. Weird.

    Ahh, the joys of beta.

  3. I thought so, so I went about and changed the names of all directories
    containing anything other than
    a-z,A-Z,0-9,_,-

    I still only get 126 directories...

    Weird :-/

    Yeah, on closer inspection it's leaving out a lot of files as well in the
    directories it does list.

    Yup, that was it! Upgraded samba and now all folders/files are listing
    correctly.

    You rock!

    I am experiencing this same problem on a Western Digital Netcenter external
    network drive.

    Manufacturers website had updated firmware but after installing and flashing
    the device the problem is still there.
