Hi, Folks, The following puzzle has just shown up. Suddenly the path \\.psf\Home is no longer valid, but voilÃ¡, the OSX home can now be accessed via the path \\.psf\ParallelsXPSharedDrive . Possible cause (or coincidence): I recently changed my OSX account to remove adminstrative permissions. Another possible cause: Suspending the VM, then waking it. I have lots of shortcuts-- I'd hate to have to recreate them all. Any suggestions? For extra credit: XP has its 'shortcuts', and OSX has its 'aliases'; does anyone know how to make one from the other? Or to 'run' aliases from XP or shortcuts from OSX? Not surprisingly, Wine does not work for the latter.
