Use case(s)


Syntax

UNCFromMappedDrive <mapped drive/folder>

Examples

UNCFromMappedDrive W: (drive only)

UNCFromMappedDrive W:\MyData (drive & path)

The second example will expand the local drive letter to its UNC path and - for your conveniance - adds the additional file/path information to the UNC path. Let's say in the above example drive W: resolves to e.g. \\MyServer\MyNetworkShare, then W:\MyData will be resolved to \\MyServer\MyNetworkShare\MyNetWorkData\MyData.
