Image preview on webdav network share

Post by mm42 » 28 Mar 2019 23:11

XYplorer 19.80.0100
Windows 10 Home 64 bit

Hello,

I'm getting an error opening image files that are on a Nextcloud WebDAV network share. The error is not coming up when I try to open/preview non-image files. Double clicking on on brings up "The system cannot find the file specified." Highlighting an image file shows "Cannot decode." in the Preview Pane.

I'm able to open the files normally when browsing in a File Explorer Window.

From the web server logs, I can see that when a picture file is requested from XYplorer, part of the path is upper cased for image files. Non-images file paths are not altered.

XYplorer request:

Code: Select all

10.0.0.xx - myuser [28/Mar/2019:17:03:51 -0500] "GET /remote.php/dav/files/myuser/PICTURES/CARS/IMG_0254.JPG HTTP/2.0" 404 238 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/10.0.17134"
File Explorer request:

Code: Select all

10.0.0.xx - myuser [28/Mar/2019:17:03:01 -0500] "GET /remote.php/dav/files/myuser/Pictures/Cars/IMG_0254.JPG HTTP/2.0" 200 1795749 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/10.0.17134"
The shared drive is mapped to:

https://nextcloud.local/remote.php/dav/files/myuser
Please let me know if you additional information.

Has the path shown in XYplorer's address bar the correct upper/lower case?

Yes. It's showing the correct case everywhere on the interface.

Address bar:

Code: Select all

H:\Pictures\Cars
Tab:

Code: Select all

https://nextcloud.local/remote.php/dav/files/myuser (H:) > Pictures > Cars

On the Properties tab of the Info Panel (F12), is the path correctly displayed?

I'm surprised about your screenshot in viewtopic.php?p=168926#p168926

Is that a mock-up? The breadcrumb bar looks weird...

Nope, I just covered up my name and server URL from a screenshot. Nothing else was changed.

Well, I cannot explain it at the moment. XY does not actively change components of a path to UPPERCASE. And it's a mapped drive and all those mappings are handled under the hood by Windows.

It's weird.
