The help says that Network Mounting points can not be used with NTFS disks. What does this exactly mean? If I format the virtual disk with NTFS then I can't use the Network Mounting points? What other choices do I have for formatting big size disks so that I can use network mounting point like hidden share?

Thanks,

At the present time our implementation to support the network mounting points causes BSOD inside the NTFS code. Maybe we will workaround it in future.

There is not. Either to use another then NTFS formatted "backend" storages or not to use network mounting points.

Thanks. To clarify, if I understand it correctly, the host disk can be NTFS. I mean, a virtual disk formatted FAT32 but hosted on an NTFS drive can still use network mounting point features. The problem comes only if you format the virtual disk itself as NTFS. Am I correct?
