When I try to create a new Database, this message error pops up: [URL=”file://server1/path1/Database1″]\server1path1Database1[/URL] isn’t accessible. the folder may by located in an unavailable location, protected with a password, or the filename contains a / . But I can access that path perfectly through the File Explorer. When I set “Default Database Folder” to F: , it works flawlessly, and %HOMESHARE% points actually to F: , so, it seems to have to do maybe with that environment variable. Thanks in advance.
