UNC stands for "Uniform Naming Convention". eMailSignature supports UNC, as opposed to network-mapped drives.

The format of a UNC path is:

Code:
\\<servername>\<sharename>\<directory>


where: <servername> The Network name
<sharename> The name of the share
<directory> Any additional directories below the shared directory.

Examples with an without space in share name:
Code:
\\srv\data\fileshare\settings.mdb
or
Code:
\\srv\data\"file share"\settings.mdb


If you need to determine the UNC path to a drive or directory, which contains your settings database, here is a simple way to get the path:

Execute the command "net use" on the computer you wish to translate the mapped drive letters for.
The output from this command will contain the drive letters and their equivalent UNC filenames:

Code:
C:\>net use
New connections will not be remembered.

Status        Local        Remote        Network
------------------------------------------------------------------------
OK            F:           \\srv\data    Microsoft Windows-network

The command completed successfully.
