    Multiple Media Directories?

    Would it be possible to have multiple media directories, like for collections spread across multiple hard disks?

    If you're using WinXP or Win2k you can use a utility called junction.exe available at http://www.sysinternals.com to create the windows equivalent of hardlinks on directories.

    You can also mount a partition as a folder on another partition from Disk Manager in the Computer Management MSC snap-in.

    sorry, i accidentally edited your post instead of replying to it.

    anyway, my question was:
    Is the error coming from MediaEngine or the junction.exe utility?

    I was trying to run it in command prompt. I figured out my mistake.

    The limited documentation makes it seem like you have to enter: junction [-c] <c:\media\oldmp3> [<g:\oldmp3>] when you really just have to enter juncion c:\media\oldmp3 g:\oldmp3

    anyway great utitiy and thanks for the info. Now to run mediaengine and see if it worked....
