UNC Path for default shares?

Aug 29, 2011 at 9:32 PM

Would it be possible to enable the UNC path functionality for the windows default drive shares?

For example, be able to turn "c:\somedir\somefile" into "\\computername\c$\somedir\somefile"?

This would be incredibly useful.

This was actually supported once and has been removed in 4.0:

I found it confusing to get those shares since they are private and most likely require authorization to work.

A workaround for you would be to uninstall and downgrade to 3.0. That sucks as a solution of course. I'll add a work item for this and see what I can do - either re-enable them in the UNC plugin or develop a new plugin for this.
