I am experiencing a problem with Directory Opus and not sure if this is a general problem or something due to my particular system.
I have a Qnap NAS and I have created a symlink folder on a local drive to a share on the NAS, G:\Ymir_Media. The Qnap is joined to a domain and uses domain credentials to set file access to the share. Under the symlink you can navigate to folders such as Photos, Videos etc. Normal file operations work fine with this arrangement, copying, moving, deleting etc.
However ,when I right-click on a folder or file to pull up the right-click menu, to get to file properties for example, Directory Opus appears to hang. I say appears, because though it doesn't generate any error, it also never brings the menu up and the lister will no longer react to any other clicks. I have left these alone for a long time but nothing ever happens (i.e registering for this forum and writing this post). I can launch new listers to navigate my file structure, but these ones seem dead. I usually have to go into Task Manager and end task them.
I have no problems with the right-click menu on folders and files that are on local drives, and I do know how to troubleshoot dodgy menu entries by selectively removing them and then slowly enabling them again. Additionally I don't have any problems with accessing the right-click menu options on the NAS if I navigate via UNC path, i.e. \ymir\multimeda\photos. It pops right up in these situations.
It is only when I go via the symlinked folder that this appears to happen. Does anyone have any advice on whether this is something I can fix myself, or whether this is an issue with Directory Opus?
