On Windows 8, I have mapped a network drive to Z:, which resides on a Mac computer on my homegroup on my gigabit network. When I mount a disk image (roughly 10 GB) on the network drive, such as an ISO file for an application, and then install it, the image unmounts after about a minute.
How can I stop it from unmounting? The Mapped Network Drive itself does not disconnect; only the disk image is unmounted.
I think that specifically in my case, the problem has to do with the fact that I am mounting a large disk image over a network. Because if I simply copy the 10 GB file to my local computer, then it finishes. So, how do I mount a large disk image over a network, and install a program from it?
