When running SE Admin as administrator, you can't see any mapped drives

So you're running Eclipse SE Admin as an administrator, and you go to ingest natives, but you only see your C:\ drive; none of your other mapped drives are showing up. This is due to the default admin account on that machine not having those drives mapped. In order to fix this so that the drives will show up during an ingestion, you'll need to modify the registry.

 

1. Click your Start menu and type in regedit

2. Once you're in the registry, navigate to this location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies > System

3. Now, left-click on that System folder and select NEW > DWORD

4. Name it EnableLinkedConnections and hit Enter

5. Double-click that new registry key and set the value to 1, and click OK

6. Close the registry

7. Reboot the machine

8. Run SE Admin as an administrator and go to Ingest Natives

9. Voila! Your mapped drives will now show up

Hey Roman,

Good tip.

of course, if you're on a company network/domain and don't have admin rights on the domain, group policy object may prevent this.

The alternative is to use unc paths (\\server\share) by hitting the browse button and pasting the unc path in.

i prefer this method when SE is installed on a network as it allows everyone else to see any ingested natives without the need to copy the natives to the case directory no matter what their personal mapped paths are. Not all user's will have the same mapped drives.
