A client has a custom application that uses a lot references to files using UNC paths on their file server (i.e. \\server1\data).
He wants to run a copy of this application on his local WIn8 workstation separate from the server. (completely separate and independent from the server version) He's copied all the applicable files to an identical file structure on his C: drive. It is not feasible to change all the references to the UNC server path in the code and data. Is there a way to convince the Win8 workstation that \\server1\data = c:\data?
