Rename shared folders

Postby Wixner » Wed Jan 21, 2009 8:26 am

First of all, I'm not really sure if this feature is implemented in the latest version or not, but this is a nice feature i'd love.

When you're sharing your, for example D:\Movies folder, it's automatically presented as "Movies" on the Ps3, but when you share your E:\Movies it too is presented as "Movies" which is bit confusing. What I'd like is a feature in PSM to virtually change the name on the shared folders.

This is a really quick implementation and shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to implement ;)

I see no point with that feature, why not yourself have it set up in your folders as "D:\Movies D" and "E:\Movies E" if you feel the need to have same folder names on two seperate discs. It's great with suggestions but i rather have the developers spending a couple of hours on features that improves the viewing experience even further.

You could work around this with softlinks in Linux & OSX

for example, each user has a ~/Movies folder you want to share.. Create a folder called Movies/ and link inside where you want to go.
Movies/User 1 -> ~user1/Movies
Movies/User 2 -> ~user2/Movies
etc...

I think Windows users are kinda screwed on this though, as I do not believe NTFS can link files/folders together.

I "up" this topic because I'd like to be able to give a "display" names to my folders, some of them have the same name on different drives.
