Using UNC names


If you access various network resources in your tasks, we recommend that you use UNC (UNC - Universal Naming Convention) names.

For example, instead of the path



you can use



A UNC name is formed in the following way:



I.e. you should use the name of the server and the name of the resource instead of the disk name ("z:").

What benefits you get:

A UNC name is always valid within your local area network and does not depend on how network drives are mapped on a particular computer.

You can use UNC names to access network resources even if you have no connected (mapped) network devices. It is simply necessary in the NT service mode when there are no mapped drives for RoboTask in principle.
