Allow users to tag files on mapped drive

Dec 8, 2016 at 9:11 PM
First off, thanks for this great software!

My questions is: how can I allow the users on my server (just a PC running Windows 10), who connect through RDP, add tags to files on a mapped drive (NAS), and see tags that other users have added?

Hi

The catch is likely to be the NAS. These provide their own implementation of NTFS, and some of them support alternate streams, which are required for File Meta, and some don’t. Annoyingly, their sales material does not typically let you know about this either way.

You can confirm where the issue is by breaking the path into stages, i.e. first using RDP to access a file on a conventional hard drive, and then accessing a file on the NAS from the Windows UI on your server.
