    Windows 8.x Copying from NAS to UAC Folder Error


    Hi all,

    I have a Synology DS213+ NAS which is running well. Since upgrading to Windows 8.x I now get an error every time I try to copy/move a file or folder from the NAS to a UAC protected directory, i.e. C:\

    The error is: "Location is not available. P:\ is unavailable. If the location is on this PC, make sure that the device or drive is connected..." it goes on.

    Anyway, if I copy the file to the desktop first, or another non UAC folder, its fine.

    I am aware of Windows 8.1 causing some other issues with the NAS so I have disabled SMB2 and Large MTU.

    I have witnessed this exact same problem on someone else's 213+ and Windows 8.1 so I know I am not alone.

    Any ideas please? Thanks. Richard
