    DW saving root folder to a seperate drive problem

    mentlity Level 1
      I've been meaning to ask this for a while, if I create a site on my internal hd I have no problem saving files to it. But my drive space is getting tight so I made a folder on my external USB drive, named it DW sites and I make root folders for sites I work on inside of that. Now I notice that in order to save anything I have to manually select that root folder or select root folder from the save box and I can only save to the root and not the actual site inside the root, follow?

      anybody?

          No. I have all my sites on a shared, network drive, allowing me to access
          the same files from any computer on my LAN. It works well.

          You might try MAPPING a drive on each computer to the top-level folder
          (i.e., the folder that contains all the other site root folders) on the
          shared drive.

            I use an external FireWire drive for all my data files and I have never
            experienced the above. DW on that computer (where the drives are
            connected) and DW on a network computer both save files right where
            they're supposed to on that drive. The drive is simply shared on the
            network with no mapping involved.

            All I can think of is to double check your site definitions.
