    If i put videos/music on my san disk in a new folder and try to include the new folder, ie click Library Tools -- Manage Library -- Add -- New folder on san disk, it says, This folder cant be included because it is on a removable device..D:/videos

    So does anyone know how to get past this?

    Pick your poison- a) Junctions or Mounted volumes

    Junctions will be good for flat, i.e., no sub folders, organization. The Music and Video app will work fine. The Photo app will not, i.e., grey sub folders. If hierarchical storage is required, use mounted volumes. The posted URL will help get by on either.

    Actually, I've tried a bunch of these "methods" and for whatever reason each has been unsuccessful. Most recently, I found this URL in a thread in this forum and this method is the one I found that is least complicated and works for me. Good luck:

    That's the mounted disk volume approach. Existed since Windows XP.
