    Windows 8.1 - Mapped drive not showing up in Applications


    Recently upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1

    I have a Synology NAS, Mapped as P: on my computer.

    I can see the P: in Windows Explorer. However, in several applications. Most notably Photoshop CC, After Effects CC and 3ds Max 2013. The P: is not accessible from the open dialogue box. Nor can i enter the path manually.

    Windows Explorer:
    Click image for larger version

    Photoshop CC:
    Click image for larger version

    3ds Max 2013:
    Click image for larger version

    Any idea why this is happening and how i can fix it?

    Cheers,
    Evan

    Unfortunately, that's not the problem.
    The NAS has been rebuilt last week with the latest Firmware. DSM 4.3. The issue is on-going.

    I'm seeing similar complaints at the Synology forums about network access on 8.1 but with no resolution to the problem.

    It may help to make some adjustments to the Lanman server settings and the NTLM encryption levels as outlined in the link below.

    You might also try turning down UAC to it's lowest level to see if that has an effect.
