UAC and network shares question
I am running Vista Ultimate under a limited account. I have a network share
(to a NSLU2). I mapped the share to a drive (S:\). If I attempt to copy a
file from the S:\ drive to a UAC protected area, I am prompted for the admin
password, followed by "the path does not exist."

I have the same share mapped in an 'administrator' account. I think the
problem is that when UAC kicks in, it doesn't realize that the same mapping
exists under the administrator account.

Note: when I say administrator account, I do not mean "ADMINISTRATOR." I
have another user with administrator privileges.

Anyone have a solution for this other than logging in as the administrator?
How do I get Vista to recognize the administrator shares from the limited
account?

This is correct. Different accounts do not see network drive
mappings of each other; this is why Administrator does not
see your's.

A solution is known for long time: avoid using drive letters, use UNC paths
instead.
