Working directory on network drive

Hi.

We changed our working directories in TOM to a network drive and got some
problems.

Old working directory used to be like: D:\WORKING\XX where xx was the
version nuber.
Now we have W:\XX, where w: is actually a shared folder in a server
(\\server\user\working\).

Now when I try to extract new files TOM gives an error like this if someone
has that file checked out.

"The file - 'file.apl' is already checked out to this directory. You are not
allowed to write over a checked out copy of any file. If you need to extract
this file to this directory, you must first unlock the file - 'file.apl' in
the project - 'PROJECT', else extract the file to another directory."

This used to work just fine when working directory was d:\working for
everyone.

So if TOM just checks the drive letter this should have not worked with
previous setup either. If TOM somehow checks the real directory structure
behind W: it should see that it is not te same directory.

Any ideas?

The working directory is a user setting. Is it possible, that you are
logging in with the same user from different workstations?
Just a thought...
Cheers
