Re: when is the drive volumes populate bug going to get fixed?
Just tried it. Its seems to be a permissions thing.
When you click on populate, nothing seems to happen, but if you go to task
manager, you see there is a dialog box waiting for you to click OK on it,
but its not visible on your screen.
If you select it in task manager, you get the darkened screen and the box
becomes visible. Hit OK and you are taken back to the drive properties.
Click on populate again, and it will work.
I guess you have to be in "real" administrator mode to work it with out the
steps I mentioned above.
The hidden message box is indeed a bug. Should be brought forward
