I just ran into a bit of a problem with stream attachment type. Everything is working fine. I am running Windows 2003, IIS6, mssql2000
I setup my webserver on the D: volume. I put the attachment directory on the E: volume because it has the most free disk space. The attachmod configuration is okay with absolute directory path on another volume for most extension types. On streams though it tries to provide the absolute path back to the browser and the website is not configured to 'see' that path and it seems that streams require it. I tried setting a virtual directory to the E: volume which IIS6 would be okay with, but attachmod doesn't like it.
Other than moving my whole website to the E: drive, is there any other possible solution?
I found that windows has the equivalent of symlink. They gave it weird names but the effect is the same. The programs LinkD.exe or fsutil can be used to manage them. www.sysinternals.com
has a better program called junction.exe . I set up a symlink of my E: volume attachment directory onto the website directory and streams work great. I didn't want to have the attachments directory visible off the website but streams are more important at this time.
