This section offers an information about various operations and settings related to connections to M-Files server.

Note: It is recommended to use Universal Naming Convention (UNC) paths (such as \\ServerName\) when you are defining a connection to a network drive, as the letter assigned to the drive may not be visible to the M-Files server. In addition, Windows drive letter assignments are frequently user-specific. A network drive may, for example, contain an external database for a value list.
