Ignoring folders and source formats
When I define a source and select a shared drive on my server it is saved as U:\.
When I add a folder to ignore, eg U:\Movie Extras, it is converted to \\server\movies-4\movie extras.
Is there a reason these are formatted differently?

I added \\server\movies-4\movie extras to the ignore list, but the folder's contents are still added to the database. Adding .tmmignore works around the problem, but is this supposed to work this way (As in adding the folder to the list is not meant to stop the folder's contents being added)?

My structure is U:\ points to \\server\movies.
On \\server\movies is a symlink that points to \\server\movies-4\Movie Extras as I have 4 x 12TB drives for movies and to reduce the number of drive letters required the movies are split by genre across the 4 drives.

Eg; (--> = Symlinked)

\\server\movies\drama --> \\server\moveis-2\drama
\\server\movies\marvel --> \\server\movies-3\marvel

I tried a folder on \\server\movies and it still got added, so I don't think the above structure is causing the issue.
