NetDrive version: 3.8.915
Windows/Mac Version: Win7-1 and Win10-1903
We have been using the old NetDrive 1 on a Win7 computer for a long time to access a NAS via WebDav. And it has been working flawlessly.
Recently we got a Win10 computer and installed the old NetDrive 1 on it, but got bluescreens on it. So today we bought two licenses to the newest version of NetDrive and installed it.
However there are a couple of big issues with it. These issues appear both on the Win7 machine as well as the Win10 machine.
1. Some folders appear as files. And some files as folders!
For example, we have a file called “Kalender 2019.pdf”. It appears with a yellow folder icon! And when we click it, we get an error message that it’s inaccessible.
I tried removing the file extention, naming the file to “Kalender 2019” and it appeared as a file. I then renamed it back to “Kalender 2019.pdf” which gave it the correct icon and I was able to open it. I then closed the folder and reopened it, and voila, it’s back to being listed as a folder again!
2. Any file or folder with local characters will not show.
In Norway we have the characters “æ” (ae-combo), “ø” (slashed o), “å” (ringed a). Any file or folder with any of those characters do not show up at all in File Explorer. In a folder with 20 items, 7 items were missing because of these characters.
When I tried to rename any of these files to something without these characters (by using an older NerDrive) they turned up in NetDrive 3 again.
I have used the following technical setup:
Storage Type: WebDAV
Mount: T as Network Drive
I also tried to mount T: as local storage with the same result.
Is there a regional setting or something that I have missed?
