Sync with network drives

I am trying to sync files from "My Network Places", but Toucan will select the folder location, even though it is visible, when browsing to find the folder. Apparently netwrok paths are not supported (i.e. http://test.net/sites/test/).

Is there a work around for this?

Support for web folders would be a very nice upgrade.

Yeah,

I'm hoping to get this supported in 2.0. Until then you could map the drive and that should work.

Unable to map a web folder

Just a note to let you know that direct support for web folders would be greatly appreciated since it is not possible to map drives to them in XP (and possibly in Vista too), but I understand the challenges involved.

I am on the road to Toucan 2 (the alpha had been posted in the beta testing forum) I will try to look into the best way of achiving this.

I would have thought the

I would have thought the easiest way to backup to web folders would be over FTP.

I can back files up to a network drive without any problems using the full network path as in \\MyNetworkDrive\MyFiles (I don't even have to map the drive). Naturally, over HTTP doesn't work since it's a completely different protocol.

Toucan 3.0.2

Is there a way other than mapping drives to sync with a network location in Toucan 3.0.2? e.g. \\server\shared\sync
Preview seems to work fine but actually running the sync produces a 'failed to copy' message for each of the files that need to be updated.
It would be very useful to me since I work with a variety of machines on a network and they don't all have the same drive mapping.
Thanks for your help,
Doug.

Try execute("C:\\Windows\\Sys

Try
execute("C:\\Windows\\System32\\cmd.exe /C net use z: \\\\192.168.1.3\\backup")
sync("AppData")
execute("C:\\Windows\\System32\\cmd.exe /C net use z: /delete")
