Before assigning snapshot views to drives (Windows)

If your makefiles or other files require absolute paths with a specific drive, assign a drive to your view.

You must assign only the snapshot view root directory to a drive. The root directory of the snapshot view contains a hidden file named view.dat. The existence of this file determines whether the current directory is in a snapshot view.

If you assign a directory below the view root to a drive, it is assumed that the current directory is not a snapshot view.
