How do I scan a network location using Link Repair


Link Repair v3.x.x.x


Link Repair supports the scanning and repairing of network shares.

The easiest method is to use mapped drives. Due to the way UAC works Link Repair may not see your mapped drives. If this happens please see Mapped drives don’t appear in the Selection List

An alternate method is to use UNC paths. On the selection list page you will notice a network share button in the top left. Clicking this will start a browse window using network discovery. In some configurations this is switched off. To work around this drag for example C:\ over to the include pane. Double click the new entry to change the path to the UNC required e.g. \\servername\servershare\*.*

This method of adding and modifying entries also works with the exclusion list.
