Expression Web 2 having difficulty working with site on a network drive.
I am using Expression Web 2 working on websites that are many years old and were developed in Front Page. It seems to really struggle with network drives.
Depending on how I open my site it will misbehave. If I open the website on a shared network drive with an assigned drive letter (we will call it S:) then I have trouble using the Save As feature. If I open a file and try to Save as to make a copy of a page for editing it will save the file but open a second Expression Web window with the same site but the path reference will be \\server\site instead of S:. So I close this second instance and referesh the EW with the site that was opened from the S: drive so that I can see the second file that I just created.
So to resolve this problem I thought that I would just work with the site from the network path instead of a shared network drive. Now the problem I have discovered is that whenever I go to add a hyperlink it ads it as an absolute reference to my file system rather than a relative reference. A link on page 2 to my home page shows up as:
If I go back to opening my site using the network drive S: then the references are relative like they should be.
Another problem I am having is that find and replace works differently depending on if I opened my site as S:\site or \\server\site. It is hit and miss but if I cannot search and replace a particlar string when my site is opened from S: I will close the site and open it from \\server\site and then the find and replace will work.
Is there a know issue using Expression Web 2 on a network drive?
By the way the server has Windows 2003 SBS and the client is using Windows XP Pro.
