I have a group of people who access an AFS share running off of a Windows 2000 Server. I want to take advantage of the Mac OS being able to access the Windows shares via Samba, but I have a little problem.
When the group accesses their data via SMB the program associations are broken. Almost everything wants to open with Preview. Additionally, the icon for the file, which normally shows the actual graphics in the file (This is a marketing office so we're talking mostly photoshop and illustrator), now just shows a generic icon.
If they create a new file and save it on the SMB share, the program association as well as the icon work correctly. It's just for the 250Gb of data that was created while connecting via AFS that is a problem.
My goal is to have these users connect using SMB, and have the icon and program associations repared. Hopefully there is a utility or something out there that can go through those files and fix accordingly.
