    Hi guys

    I'm trying to access a network share from a Windows Server 2008 R2 and I'm receiving the follow error:

    [​IMG]

    If I put the complete UNC, I can access the share:
    [​IMG]

    Now, if I up one level, I can see other shares:
    [​IMG]

    Anyone have any idea why I'm receiving this error?

    Because the directory path isn't indexed... it's a windows enhanced sercurity setting i.e, not a bug but part of internet explorers anti-hack settings (this can be disabled in modern servers but I'd havn't still got a 8r2 running to test for you sorry) ... most scenarios the correct thing would be to include a new share to that location.
