Public | UNC network path for Source and Destination Folders
Closed, WontfixPublic


Replicator should be able to browse to a UNC network path for Source and Destination, IMHO.

Need to check out the work involved. I think it's a matter of upgrading Karen's file browser control.

Should this wait until a native .NET version? I mean, Windows does come with a fully blown file browser these days. And, I believe it's backward compatible to everywhere the .NET framework runs.

The browser won't browse it, but you can type paths at the end and it will lookup the completion.

Tested: Replicator will backup from a UNC network path (from my own machine, anyway).

Going to wait for C# .NET version which will work right out of the box.
