Question / Problem

Does SpaceObServer support scan DFS (distributed file system) shares? Whenever I try to scan DFS shares, no files were found. Why?

Answer / Solution

Since DFS shares do not represent a physical directory structure, the option 'Follow mount points and symbolic links' must be activated in the "Configure Scans" dialog. By default, folders that are not physically located at the location to be scanned are excluded from the scan.
