When setting up additional QuickBooks Desktop workstations in a multi user environment, it is sometimes difficult to find the QuickBooks Company file over the network without detailed information on how the network was originally configured. It is useful to quickly identify the network location of QuickBooks Company file from another workstation. If this location is a mapped network drive, extra steps are required.
A mapped network drive is similar to a Windows Shortcut. It is not a physical drive installed on the workstation. Instead, it refers to a specific folder shared over the network. When accessing this mapped network drive, Windows will access the network folder. This network path is also known as UNC path (Universal Naming Convention).
Method 1: Check the Properties of the Mapped drive
If the path is not fully visible, the path might be too long. If that is the case, follow method 2.
Method 2: Show Network Details
