Hi. Was presented with a situation today where I needed to gain access to an individuals d:\ (DVD-ROM) drive today, but I knew from past attempts that I could not perfrom a UNC path to the drive. Is there another way to gain access to drives (other than the C:\ drive) without remoting in the computer or being at the location physically? Thanks for your help!

UNC path only work if you have ''shared'' the drive.

If you share the drive, you can use the UNC path, so login remotely (if it can) and then share the drive.

Ahh. I see. Not that this applies in this case, but is there a way to share the drive of the remote user without actually remoting in? (Ie; command line options?)

Let the Remote user itself sharing it.

Right-click on the drive
Sharing and security
(You maybe get an warning about not sharing root folders, click yes or on blue text)
Share it under a name (a drive letter)

And then you can see on the MY NETWORK PLACES, if you go to that computer the CD/DVD drive.
