Not loading correctly when config is on a network drive

Not loading correctly when config is on a network drive

Postby whitman on Wed Jun 13, 2012 11:47 am

I use Windows 7 at work where our home directory and app data is stored on a network share (so %APPDATA% resolves to \\<server-name>\<username>\application_data).

ST2 (I've tried both 2181 and currently 2200) often doesn't load correctly. Either the theme doesn't look right or packages don't get loaded. In the console the "loaded x snippets" can vary from anywhere between 400 to 900 and occasionally the theme file doesn't get found. I'm assuming this is something to do with the files being on a network drive as I don't have the same issues at home.

Is there anything that can be done to make this more reliable? Happy to provide further details/diagnostics if needed.

In general, this configuration works fine. You may want to give the portable version a go, so you can store the app data locally.

Looking at it more, some files are getting skipped during load because the inode has been seen before, except in these cases the files are wrong:
Code: Select all
scan: //<server>/<username>application_data/Sublime Text 2/Packages/Markdown has been seen before, skipping (using inode) previous path: //<server>/<username>/application_data/Sublime Text 2/Packages/DocBlockr inode: 18446735965056266256

On the latest load there were 14 skipped. This number and the files themselves vary.

I've set "ignore_inodes" to true in build 2200 but presumably that setting isn't read until after some other package files?
