Use same share name as another share on same server. Keep half of folder structure in one drive and rest on another drive
Posted on 2005-04-01
I have multiple drives on my server. I moved a directory to another drive, and want to give it the same share name so i do not have to update my clients (that have mapped drives pointing to the share). How might i do this? My clients have mapped directories to the share.
For example, My F drive has the following directory shared: F:\Public, and the share name is called Public. Under the public directory I have many different sub-directories. One of the sub-directories was so big (the APPLET directory), i had to move it to another drive. The E drive. So i recreated the structure on the E drive (new drive) to mimic the F drive (old drive). When i went to share the E:\Public directory (new share), i got the following error, "You are already sharing F:\Public using the name Public. Do you want to share E:\Public using the name Public instead?" If i do this, then people that have mapped drives will go out of wack. How can I get around this?
