ExpandUNCFileName function

Returns the full path of a file name with the network drive portion in UNC format.

Unit

Sysutils

Category

file name utilities

function ExpandUNCFileName(const FileName: string): string;

Description

ExpandUNCFileName returns a string containing a fully qualified path name for the file passed in as FileName. A fully qualified path name includes the drive portion of the filename in the UNC format '\\<servername>\<sharename>' if the drive letter is mapped to a network resource instead of a local drive with any directory and subdirectories in addition to the file name and extension.

Use this function to store filenames that are independent of a particular user's drive letter mappings.
