Win10 cannot see mapped network drives

#1 Post by rmosi2015 » 11 Dec 2018, 16:44

If PhotoRec is on desktop in Win10 and you try to drag an image file from network share, ex k:, the program will not open to use, will close immediately, this is due to network shares not seen in Dos. Also if you start the program, does not see network shares. Workaround for this is the following registry addition:

Open regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Add a new DWORD (32-bit) Value named EnableLinkedConnections
Adjust the value to 1 (or 00000001)
Exit regedit and restart the computer

If you are in command line, it should work without modifying the registry y using

Code: Select all

set __COMPAT_LAYER=RunAsInvoker
photorec_win.exe path_to_image.dd
