Slash stripped from UNC path


When entering a double backslash for a UNC path, one slash is stripped.

i.e. “\Servername” shows as “\Servername”.

All it takes is a preview.

Should I be reporting these elsewhere?


Hi Greg,

Were exactly is this path you’re talking about? Is this the cHOST?


Whoops, my bad. No sorry…

It’s simply in the “Note” field for a request. For example, if I want to tell a user/customer that a file is on a specific location on the server I’ll usually put a path to the server in a public note. So… “\Servername\Share\Path” is stripped to “\Servername\Share\Path”.
