UNC Share path and Drive Mapping

In one of the PCs on the network, the user cannot access the share mapping using drive mapping but using UNC path there is no issues. This happens inside a particular application like Sage.

Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

Hi

As per the below link it appears that SAGE has issues using the mapped path but is it not better to use UNC as it will remove dependency on mapping drives?

So the issue relates to Sage not the network. The Sage support aruged it was related to network, even though I could access the files through the explorer using both methods.

Hi

If you can access the files through explorer from that machine then you can be sure that it is an application related issue and not an access issue.
