Re: files limit in a folder
It'd be interesting to know whether nasostrikas also runs Avast, that could explain why two people have appeared at precisely the same time with a problem that no-one else seems to have experienced previously.
Yes I have Avast.
So you telling me that Avast Antivirus (I have bought it by the way) it's the reason I can't see all shared folders.
So everyone who bought Avast (or have Avast) they can not buy AC Ryan HD Mini 2 because if they want to connect via WiFi they could not share all their folders.
Just saying it might be. Looking at it logically:-
There must be loads of other people using the Mini 2 with Windows 7 without this issue.
Avast has been known to cause this issue in the past.
You just happen to run Avast.
So it's definately worth your time investigating whether it's a problem with your anti-virus software, wouldn't you agree? Do your ten friends with Mini 2's also run Avast?
Just to be clear, if it is the same issue it doesn't break wi-fi, it breaks file serving functionality, wired or wireless. In my company's case it came to light because it "broke" our client's Linux fax servers and earlier versions of Windows.
But this kind of solution means that AC Ryan MP does not tested correctly by the support stuff.
I say that because my job is Professional Testing Engineer on mobile devices and I know about "testing"!!
I don't agree at all. As a "Professional Testing Engineer" you'd surely understand that the more factors that come into play, the harder testing becomes, to the point where the amount of testing required outweighs any likely benefit?
I'm not even sure how they could have tested for this, or how it would have helped if they had? They can't "fix" it, all they could do is tell you to try investigate problems with Avast, and that is what has happened anyway.
Clearly it's unreasonable to expect any organisation, whether AC Ryan or Microsoft, to re-test every combination of software and hardware on a regular basis, just on the off-chance that some random 3rd party might break a standard function at some point.
Rhetoric Question : How would you react if you had bought a mobile device with WiFi connection (except from GSM/GPRS/3G) and you realize that you can't connect via WiFi in your very expensive Cisco home router.....??
I'd probably investigate which one was "broken" and try and get it fixed or replaced. If weight of evidence showed that it's possible that the Cisco home router was the broken component, and I had the information necessary to confirm for myself, I'd do so.
To apply your rhetorical situation to your actual one though:- Since there's plenty of evidence that Mini 2's work happily with Windows 7, and further evidence that Avast has broken sharing functionality in the past, I'd probably just uninstall it and try it again. Worst case I have to reinstall Avast.
If that worked I'd try reinstalling Avast from the very latest build and take it from there. If it didn't work, then at least I've removed one thing from the equation and I can then move forward, see if anyone has any more ideas.
Complaining unproductively that my problems are only happening due to a lack of testing which likely wouldn't have identified my problem anyway, and certainly would have done nothing to fix it, would be fairly far down my "to do" list. But that's just me
