I have a C: drive and a spanned D drive . I downloaded Adobe reader and saved it into D: drive, with a shortcut into my desktop.
when I right-clicked the shortcut--->properties, it gave me location C:\......... something.
Is this normal behaviour of spanned volumes?

Thanks

Hi Chuckbuchan,

Did you install the file? If so, by default it installes on the C: drive.
Otherwise, did you by mistake check the properties of the shortcut and the location of the shortcut instead of the location of the destination?

when I downloaded the file it asked me about the location where to save it, then I chose D:
on the desktop when I right-clicked the shortcut for the file----properties, it gave me its location as C:\........something.
Anyway , I went to D: drive then I found the Executable copy of that file in the D drive. So I am just confused why in the properties of the shortcut it gave me the location of the file in C:\.....................

It probably gave you the location of the shortcut, not the location of the file, please double-check.

You might be right..... but if I didn't know that I installed the file in D: drive , how could I have known the real location of the file.
Or let 's assume somebody else used my computer and wanted to know the location of that file, how can he tell where the location of the file is?

Right-click the shortcut and choose properties, now check "Target"

I was mistaken. I downloaded the set up file to D: drive , but when I installed it I installed it in C: drive , which was the default. I understand now, after I uninstalled it then reinstalled it.
