Problem with 7.3

I have always used network shares as the source of music files. although you can add a folder like, y:\media\music, the server does not appear to read any of the data. y: is a mapped network share; it is mapped to \\drobo-fs\public. v7.2.6 had no such problem.

I guess nevermind.
Although this should work, I put the full UNC in the shared folder path and the server is now scanning the library.
btw, I used the IP address so that it didn't even have to use DNS to look it up.

It has to do with the twonky service running as the "system" account
If you change the service to run as a user account, it will work as expected

duh, of course, the mapping only exists for the user and not for the system local account where the service runs.
thanks, jon
