Mount network shares.

Will we ever have the ability to mount a network share to a Playbook?

Re: Mount network shares.

Do you mean enable a share from the PlayBook file system, or?  What use case are you looking to solve?

Re: Mount network shares.

I would like to be able to mount a share from a 2008 R2 server to my Playbook, like in Windows, so each time I log in to my Playbook my //server/share loads as a folder and I can access it from my Playbook while I am on my local network.

Gotcha!!

 

We are revamping the file manager for future OS releases so I'll pass this feedback along.
