Dreamweaver 8 warning- the root folder you have chosen...

Posted on 2009-12-17

I run Dreamweaver 8 on XP. I keep some local folders on an external hard drive. Sometimes that hard drive letter changes, and I have to edit the local settings for a site.

Whenever I do this, I get this error message: Dreamweaver 8 warning- the root folder you have chosen is inside the folder for 'HomeBistro'. This may cause some operations, such as synchronization, to work incorrectly. Proceed anyway?

The root folder is not inside the folder for HomeBistro, and I don't know where this is coming from. Any ideas?

    Do you have multiple website's setup in dreamweaver? If you do I would check to make sure no other websites are using the same folder. Dreamweaver usually throws this error when website projects overlap. If you have a bit more info on how you have things setup maybe I can help further.

    I do have multiple sites, but none are inside this homebistro folder. For instance, if I click Start:Run, and enter I:/JCs, the folder opens that I got this error on. That shows that it isn' within another folder, doesn't it? Thanks for your help.

    Check the settings for the homebistro site and see where the root of the site is. Make sure that it is in a completely different folder than the other project.
