Wrong network parent location

While attempting to add a network share to Atakama, the process may fail with a message that you cannot add a parent directory of another “beds path” as a storage location. This can be best illustrated with an example.


You have a network share named, \\share. Then, you add a directory, named \\share\a\b, as a folder in Atakama. However, if you later try to add \\share\a as a folder as well, this message would appear. This happens because if this operation was allowed, \b would show up as both Atakama\a\b and as Atakama\b.

The workaround for this is to remove \\share\a\b as a bed, and then to retry adding \\share\a. Note that the files may appear with their original path when you unlock them on your phone.
