How to add a UNC path to Windows 7 Libraries

One of the new feature with Windows 7 allows you to combine multiple folders into a common view that allows you to view all your files of a certain type (e.g. Music) in one location called a Library. The restriction with this feature is that you cannot added network share from computers that are not indexed.

However this is only a restriction with the UI and therefore it can be setup using the API’s. Luckily you can now download the tool to do this at Zorn Software that allows you to add a UNC path to a Library call the “Win7 Library Tool”.

This advantage of this is adding a UNC patch to a library is that you can now add NAS drives to your Windows 7 libraries.

Some of the other features of this tool are:

  • Backup library configuration, such that a saved set of libraries can be instantly restored at any point (like after a re-install of the OS or for transfer between multiple computers).
  • Create a mirror of all libraries (using symbolic links) in [SystemDrive]:\libraries.  This means you can reference all your files using a much shorter path, and also provides another entry-point to your files in many places in the Operating System (e.g. file open/save dialogs).
  • Change a library’s icon.
