Hello everybody,

When I access to a path as a UNC path, and I need it as the current directory, is it mandatory to provide it a driver letter ?

    Sorry I later realized that the used platform was not made obvious by the name of the forum : it is Powershell.

    My script looks like this :

    $source = Get-ChildItem "\Uc00006\d\Projets Visual Studio\Web"

    foreach($d in $source)
    {
    $N = $d.Name;
    $path = "D:\Projects Visual Studio\web\" + $N;
    if((Test-Path $path)-eq $true){
    $N + " OK";
    }
    else{
    "not found : " + $N;
    }
    }

    This version does not work (to Copy-Item), it was OK when I used SUBST to initialize the default path.

    Does Test-Path test for sub-directories ?
    Shall have a look tomorrow.

    Hi @Gloops ,

    Test-Path c:\Junk\*  
    

    Gives a false if empty.
    Gives a true if a file or a folder is in Junk
