I am evaluating driver version of SolFS. I have created two mounting points for a storage file - one \\.\R: and one \\.\MySecretDisk. When I open a file using the syntax 'r:\textfile.txt', it opens very quickly. But when I open file using syntax, '\\.\MySecretDisk\textfile.txt', there is a long delay before opening the file (7 seconds on a fast machine).

Upon further investigation, it looks like it is the fault of the application (in this case, notepad). My application can access the file quickly. Unfortunately, it seems many applications have difficulty with the private mountingpoint syntax.

I would say that many applications don't know how to handle UNC syntax at all ...
