Hi,

I wonder if it's possible to access files on NTFS network drive from SWT application running on Linux. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and when I browse files using Nautilus, "Network" folder and NAS drive inside it can be seen and files can be manipulated from my Linux box.

But when I try to manipulate files on NAS from my SWT application, using FileDialog, folder "Network" can't be seen at all. Is there any way I could access those files using SWT FileDialog?


Best regards,

Albert

The "Network" folder in Nautilus is not a real folder but rather a shortcut to where your NAS is actually mounted.

Most probably the network drive is mounted in /mnt or /media/*. Try to look there for your files. To find the exact mount point of your network drive, type "mount" in a console. It will list you all mounted drives.

Hi,

thank you for your answer. Yes, you are right, once the NAS share is mounted to some directory, my SWT application can access files from there.


Best regards,

Albert
