Hi
What is the type of drive referencing called when you refer to a path like this -> \\<machine name>\<folder> as opposed to an explicit Letter being mapped to a machine & folder. I'm sure it has a name, I heard it a few years ago but can't remember what it is. Can anyone help ?
cheers.

So you are mapping a path to a shared resource using universal naming convention

It is a universal naming convention path or UNC path for short.
