How do I access files on other machines?

A. To access files on other machines, you can use the Uniform Naming Convention (UNC—e.g., \\server name\share name\dir\file). Alternatively, you can map the drive, use a drive letter to access the file, then unmap the drive. To use this method, enter the following commands.

net use g: \\savilltech\&lt;filetosee&gt;<br>
... g:\dir\file.txt<br>
net use g: /d
