Windows Home Server (WHS)
Windows Home Server (WHS) –
Is it possible to get OPL to work if I created a folder "PS2SMB" on my WHS?
The name of the folder is irrelevant to file sharing, as this uses a fileshare name which does not have to match the physical name of the folder. And even this fileshare name is configurable in OPL.

Assuming that you can configure the server to share this folder using normal SMB protocol, which every Windows system should be able to do (it is their native file sharing protocol), then you should be able to use it with OPL. The only question here is if you can configure it properly, and since I've never used that 'dialect' of Windows I have no advice at all about it.

Thanks for the reply. I think it is going to be better to store the games on a separate computer anyways. It will do daily backups of the drive with the games and if any game ever becomes corrupt I can restore the drive to the previous day. If all the games were stored on WHS itself, it would only allow for a hard drive failure (Drive Duplicate). I don't know how or if it is easily possible to restore files to previous versions if stored on WHS. It is every easy to restore the entire drive to a particular day though.
If you can follow what I am saying it may be helpful to others. Thanks again.
