On Windows 8 Consumer Preview I’ve been noticing the following cmd:
dir *.* /s
Works fine on local subdirectories, but not reliably on network drives, only scans the current directory, despite the /s
You can see the broken example here, as I’m on a network drive:
Where as from a Windows 7 machine (mapped as same user):
ProcMon showed the following error on Windows 8 machine not working:
On the file server (in this case Win7 x64 SP1 machine) I found the following problem:
I ended up deleting this folder, and dir /s still failed. Through ProcMon found more paths getting “Network Error”
Once they were removed (or presumably permissions fixed)
I then had a working dir /s again!
If I have time I will investigate further on what change cause this issue.
