Mac network folder reverting issuse...

by motophile / February 4, 2010 10:35 PM PST

I tried searching for this problem but I don't even know what to call it so here it goes... I am at a printing company with 4 Mac workstations (10.5.8) working from a Mac server (10.4.11). The system has worked great for a couple years until the last month or so. Now when working at a workstation and opening more than one folder on the server, both windows revert to the server level. It drives me crazy when I need to copy something from one folder to another. Now I have to have only one window open, copy file to desktop, open new folder, copy or move file to new folder, delete desktop file. Permissions have been repaired on all stations and aliases have been recreated. Any idea how to stop this from happening?
Thanks, Ron

What does "revert to the server level" mean?

Revert to server level is just the best way I can describe the problem. What it means is that when working from any of the four work stations, if you open the server volume, the first window you come to, is what I am referring to as the server (top) level. Any additional windows opened on the server from a work station will cause all server windows to default back to the top level, losing the current folder location. Does that make sense?
Thanks, Ron

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
