I've been trying to add my photos and music to the Metro apps and if I understand correctly, I need to add the folder locations to the Libraries.

I've got my Music and Photos located on a Windows 2008 R2 server with the Windows Search service running and configured to index those locations.

Initially, I simply added the network location to the library ie: \\SERVER\Shared\Music, and this SORT OF worked, I was only able to see the folders in the photos and only some music showed up with some track info missing.

Then I made the folders available offline and added them again, this time NOTHING shows up.

Gregory JS - appreciate the feedback, but it has landed in the wrong spot. I would visit the Win8 Dev Center and go into the community discussions area ( http://dev.windows.com). Microsoft has service professionals in those forums listening for suggestions and bugs.
