My application requires to copy data to \\yourUNC\path which is password protected
My application is aware of the UserName and Password.
If I use

Net Use \\yourUNC\path /username password

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Setup a scheduled task and let the system account do it. network drives are per-user, it won't be accessible by others.
You could also delete the Share at the end of your process:

Net Use \\yourUNC\path /DELETE
