Is your auto-population on or off? (Found in Folder View settings, bizarrely).

sorry ade bit slow on uptake which folder my network places has blank screen

Doesn't matter. Any folder. Open a folder - go to Folder Options > View. See if the option is checked or not. Its status when this loss of the shortcut occurred influences what advice I should give you.

Oh, and maybe check it on the other client as well (the one from which this share originates). Just for consistency.

ade the problem turns out to be the client share was not installed so have redone that and the files re appear,the client share has also disapeared off two of the other computers connected so have had to do the same.any idea why this would of happened?

S'okay, no worries. I just figured that you were off sorting it, inbetween all the real-world stuff that interrupts us! LOL.

I haven't much clue as to why the shared folder would dissappear; do you mean that the folder's share status reverted itself, or just the shortcuts/references to it were lost? I'm intrigued by that one; off to do a bit of searching.

No, that's okay. I hadn't started invstigating yet anyways (busy trying to upload a site to a sub-domain: oh what fun!). Thanks for the info and glad you got it sorted. Happy file sharing!
