Sorry Tony we are getting side tracked.
I know all about the Public Directory it exists as a *Share* only on my
SARPC HardDrive, it's there as a central repository for me as the Admin of
the whole shebang in this family, so anyone with something for me, or I
for them, can stick it in that One Dir and we all know where it's gonna be.

All RO installs here have a Public Directory, but only *Mine* is Shared.

The problem was much simpler to solve and didn't require Locate.

My brain is more in Windows than RO these days, so I had all the RO
Hardrives, from the icon bar menu ticked as Shared (Things on Windows only
get Shared if you physically Set and give permissions to access.)

Anyway, it's all now sorted, so thanks for the help.
