#3697 closed Bug report
Wrong/Unwanted driver information
|Reported by:||andretannus||Owned by:|

Brief setup explanation:
On my web development setup, I have a server where all my work files are stored. Each project is its own folder in this server, and each folder is shared independently (the Projects folder isnÂ´t shared).
Then, on my machine (Windows XP SP2) I map these shared folders into VIRTUAL DRIVERS. This way, all my projects appear to be in HDs, whereas they are actually shared folders on a network.
I can then LABEL these drivers (just like I can RENAME a real driver). All the drivers share the same REAL NAME (the serverÂ´s name), but Windows allows me to label (not rename, just label) them differently so I name each of them after the PROJECT NAME.
FileZilla displays the DRIVER NAME (serverÂ´s name) instead of the DRIVER LABEL. So all my 13 virtual drivers are named the same in FZ, and I have to rely on Driver Letter to figure out which one is the one I need at the moment!
Soooooo easy to fix!
I was using an eval version of SmartFTP, and that little software gets the virtual driver label correctly, so a solution is attainable.
FileZilla is the closest thing to SmartFTP in usability, and I see a LOT of potential in it! I would also like to participate in the development.

Sorry, pasted my reply in the wrong window.
FileZilla is cross-platform. Getting things like "drive labels" is Windows specific, it is not available on other, more sane operating systems and requires a lot of extra code. Unfortunately I do not know how to get the required information. The Windows API documentation is very cryptic on this.
If you figure it out, please write a patch and attach it here.
Most likely your server disobeys the MDTM specifications.
