    • Part of the installation process of EFS
  • UNC Naming (\\server\share) vs. Drive Mapping (G:\)
  • Here’s how:

  • To make EFS access easy for Users
    • Create a default “Starter Workspace” for everyone’s use
    • Save the workspace to a protected network location
    • Create a shortcut on users’ Desktops to this default workspace

EFS 2.7 - AU1

saving a workspace
Saving a Workspace
  • All workspaces saved as a .pwf file
  • Sharing workspaces is dependent on the directory path
      • Must have the same path to view images
        • Problems occur only for recipient
        • UNC (universal naming convention) is highly recommended
          • \\Server\Share Name
        • Don’t rely on mapped drives
          • G:\

EFS 2.7 - AU1

sharing workspaces
Sharing Workspaces
  • Useful tool
  • Must have same path to library of imagery
  • Potential problems can be avoided
      • Same universal naming convention and file names are essential
      • Don’t rely on designated drive letters
      • Must have EFS to view shared workspace!

the query tool display
The Query Tool Display
  • Output Window – Query Info Tab
