Title: use "map network drive" to use drives across a network
Post by: R. Neil Haugen on May 20, 2011, 02:29:46 PM
I've had a discussion with Marc (IIP creator) about difficulty getting the newest IIP to copy uploads across a Windows peer<->peer network. It would stop and give an error message that there wasn't enough drive space on the HD on another computer.

Tested a work-around just now, and it worked fine ... simply use the "Map Network Drive" option from Window's "Explorer" file-managing system program to map the drive on the other machine to the uploading machine's list of "local" hard-drives, then from IIP, choose that "local" mapping of the other computer's hard-drive as a destination.

It's happy, we're happy, everything's fine here thank you ... :)

Sadly ... a false positive.

It will take a few jpegs ok ... but if you give it say, 107 raw files, it decides after copying 3 and 16 of them to the other machine that there ain't enough space confirmed or something on the other drive and pukes.

Sigh.

Sorry!

Easiest work-around I've figured out is to have the "post conversion" line create a copy of the files in their folders on the desktop, and created a shortcut on the desktop to the appropriate drive/folder on Miriam's machine ... so Miriam/employee can just drag&drop the client folder onto the shortcut folder ... and when the copying to the 'tother computer is complete, delete the client folder from the desktop. Not *quite* as automated as if it could do it within the main IIP action, but still easy and simple enough.
