I have some VB code that can take a UNC path like:
\\myserver\mydir as a parameter
OR
c:\
the code interrogates mydir on myserver (or c:\) and returns files and directories - recursively -sucessfully

My question is this:
I want to interrogate c:\ on myserver but the code fails.
What do I pass the function to call all the directories on \\myserver?

I suspect the confusion comes from having share names the same as directory names.

If that server's main drive is c:, there's a good chance its share name is c$.
