    Thumbnails in Picture Library


    Hi, first time poster here.

    I've used the method 2 from the sevenforums tutorial to include a network folder in the Picture Library. In Windows 7 it works with thumbnails but not in W8. Does anybody know if it's possible at all?

    Am I the only one with this problem? All you people with your libraries stored on NAS, do you have thumbnails?

    I've got exactly the same issue - mine seems even more problematic. I've gone the symlink and junction link route to getting the libraries to operate in Win 8 but even though the Photo app can see the folders on the NAS when you navigate into them it cant find anything.

    I'm wondering if there is a permission issue as when viewing the security settings there is some oddities.
