Hello folks,

 

Something that I have been wondering for a while now and have not been able to find a clear answer for is this...

 

For setting up libraries, there is the folder and the optional netork path. As I am on a Mac, my folder is listed as

 

/Volumes/Share/Movies

 

With that in mind, should the optional network path be listed as

 

//Server/Share/Movies

 

or should it be 
 

\\Server\Share\Movies

 

Currently my shares come from both Windows and Mac boxes, not that I think that makes any difference.

 

Thanks!

N

Hi, It would be whatever your other devices on your network would use to access the network path.

@Luke That is going to vary though. Macs would use //Server/Share/Movies where as Windows would use \\Server\Share\Movies

Then i would do it the windows way because we don't have a mac app with direct file access anyway.

Perfect. That was what I was expecting, but just hadn't found a clear answer. Thanks @Luke :-)
