File Path's

Question

Hi, I have a problem with file path's in toast document's.

When I uses file from another volume than the startup volume the .toast document loses the path's of all files after a restart and I have to add them all over again.

Can anyone help me with this annoying issue?

A .toast file is a disc image that does not maintain file paths outside of the disc image itself. Maybe what you are looking for is to choose Save from the Toast File menu which saves a .disc file that does maintain those paths unless something that the .disc file is pointing to gets moved from its original position.

Yes, you're right. My mistake. It's a .disc document but with the same problem?

As long as the external drives are mounted at the time you open the .disc file I'd expect the links work. Of course any moving or renaming of any part of the path will lose the link. I'll give it a test to see if my results are the same as yours.

I have done more tests:

I have an extra internal hard disc in my computer and files on that disc is working. I also have an external LaCie disc connected with firewire and here is the problem. If I make a .disc document with files from these 3 disc's (internal system disc, internal disc and external disc with firewire), only files from the firewire disc is losing there path's.

Is the LaCie Firewire disc formatted HFS+?
