NetHood folder reported on local drive. Backups keep filling up local drive!!!
Posted on 2008-10-27
I have a windows server 2003 box that has three shortcuts in my network places or (C:\documents and settings\<username>\nethood\...)
We have backup software that converts a UNC path to a shortcut in network places. The shortcuts indeed work and redirect you to the correct path, however each time a backup is run the files on the remote network are reported on the local machine drive. Meaning each time a 2GB backup is done, it eats up 2GB on the remote machine and 2GB on my C: drive.
How can I get windows to not report the files on the remote machines as local?
