Is there a way in Powershell to control the level of directories that are displayed and also display the full path at the sametime. For example I have a directories thats over 6 levels deep but I am only interested in displaying the first 3 . I have tried this command  
dir \\servername\share\home\*.*  | ft fullname, name

The problem with this command that it does not work unless I map the drive and cannot figure out how to display that full path. We have a lot of these that I need to run so mapping a drive is really something I am trying to avoid. Any help would be appreciative and thanks.
