    Default From acad (only acad) File\Open I am unable to access my C: drive

    I've built a new standalone pc, installed XPpro and A2006.
    From acad (only acad) File\Open I cannot access my C: drive. The error message is -

    \\P2-350\SharedDocs is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
    The network path was not found.

    \\P2-350\ does not appear in the acad files lists and it does not appear in the registry.

    P2-350 was the name of my old pc. The only common part is the primary hard drive from the old pc that is a secondary drive on the new one.

    Any thoughts?

    Did you change the jump(s) on the old drive to be a slave drive instead of the master?

    I've seen this when both the drive were set to "cable-select"..

    No. That didn't work even after rebooting.

    Might that path be located in a shortcut on the left pane of the dialog box?

    Do you mean Favourites, History, Buzzsaw, etc.?

    If so, no, it's not there either.

    I hate to admit this but I think I'm going to have to reinstall - the last resort.

    A complete acad uninstall/install didn't fix it either so I'm going to have to get seriously mean with this pc later in the week.

    Did you install the OS on a new HD or move the existing disk? If a new disk disconnect the old disk and boot from there.
