How to scan files placed on NAS?
« on: February 24, 2016, 17:54:36 »
Hey there!

First of all - respect for making such a great app, love it even in the free trial mode, you rock!

But I have one really discouraging experience with it - I just can't scan my music collection placed on the NAS server in the lan network.
When I try to unfold the Network it shows nothing there, and when I double-click on the NAS hyperlink at the "This computer" it just opens it in the regular Explorer (BTW same happens with smartphone attached to the PC).

Would be great to be able to add for the scan folders by direct name, like

\\192.168.0.5\Media\Music\

to bypass any issues with built-it network browsers.

Now I have to copy music to the local drive to scan it and manually remove duplicates in NAS, this is pretty painful.

Maybe I'm missing something or doing something wrong?

This app will definitely have a one more sale as soon as I'll be able to work with music placed on NAS.

Cheers!

I have similar issue

I have my Samba NAS folders mapped to the Drive Letters, Some of the SubFolders on those drives are Logical folders [Hard links] (eg. entire partition mapped to the Folder on another drive) these folders are not visible in the Similarity Folder List.
