> There are no places where the full path is returned, though. I guess that's what they mean... If this is the case (the full path is returned), there is no foolproof way of knowing if a path with prefix and one without refers to the same file/folder. The only way would be disabling the prefix as they mentioned, but that results in having the driveletter in the path, which is not very nice. > The protocol wouldn't work otherwise. I cannot really comment on this as I do not know the protocol nor your code. Except for the fact that I don't understand why it should be a problem. If everywhere a relative path (that's what the prefix does) is used as the reference to a file/folder, there should not be a problem for CVSNT as it knows the prefix to place in front of it when it needs it and the client doesn't care as far as I can see. > Which FAQ?

There is no reason to use the same drive at all.
