Network Share Shortcut Changes to Folder
Posted on 2006-06-30
Under "My Network Places" in the Windows XP file explorer I have many network share shortcuts. These are great and I use them all the time. They save time in many areas over having to map a drive. However, it seems that over time these shortcuts turn into folders with the same name and a "target" shortcut to the share inside of the folder. This is very annoying because I have to delete the folder and recreate the share.
Is there any way to prevent this behavior?
Also, in order to create the shortcut you have to actually open a file on the share. Is there a way to create a network shortcut under My Network Places manually?
