NetCopy.exe can be used to create a network installation point for the MSDN Library. When running NetCopy and copying all MSDN Library files to a network share, the following warning may incorrectly appear:
This message displays, even though the target network share is known to be using the FAT32 file system.
This problem can happen when the network share is on a Windows 2000 computer. Setup is using GetVolumeInformation API to determine the file system type. The GetVolumeInformation API incorrectly returns FAT instead of FAT32 when used on a Windows 2000 FAT32 network share.
Verify that the file system is FAT32:
- Go to the actual target computer. Do not use the network share.
- Use Windows Explorer to select the target drive.
- Right-click on the drive letter, and select Properties.
- Verify that the File System is FAT32.
After verifying that the target network share is on a FAT32 drive, you can safely ignore the warning. If the target drive is not FAT32, please see the READMEDN.htm file on Disc 1 of the MSDN Library for more information about the potential problem.
This behavior is by design.
The NetCopy.exe program first shipped with the January 2000 MSDN Library.
