    Hi there,

    I am using Parallels Desktop 8 on 10.7.4 with Windows7 as Guest. as a developer I use VS2010 and need intellisense and other options that rely on File Changed notification to work. My code is of course on the shared drive (//psf/..) so that I can make use of TimeMachine backup in OSX (Great configuration btw;))

    Now, the file changed notifications dont seem to work as two issues occur:

    - When creating new code in VS2010, Intellisense doesn't pick up the changes until you close/reopen VS2010
    - When creating new unit tests, Resharper doesn't pick up the changes until you refresh all unit tests

    I found this related posts:
    This file server does not appear to support change notification - http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=105262

    So, is there any way to get the above to work (Change notification) without moving all my files to C:/ in windows (then I lose backups)

    Best regards,
    Andrew
