FindFirst/FindNext on UNC drive

tfield98 asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-21
I'm having trouble getting any files back when calling FindFirst on a UNC Drive, as in FindFirst('\\Dev-dx\*.*')

It always comes back false.

Is this a rights issue?

I can browse the top level list of folders on this drive in the Windows Explorer. I can examine the contents of some of them in the Windows Explorer. Some of them are locked by our system administrator from further examination. But, I thought that FindFirst should allow me to ennumerate the folders to which I have rights?
