How to scan multiple servers or drives with UNC paths

You may want to add drives and/or server locations that are not accessible browsing for servers/SAN drives/shares using the 'Add folder...' option in the NXPowerLite (and Quick Scan).

Follow these instructions to enable you to add UNC paths to the list of folders that NXPowerLite will scan:

Step 1: (Not needed for Quick Scan) Ensure the user that is running the software has full access (read/write/update/delete permissions) to all the data on all of the servers/drives you wish to scan.

Step 2: Click the 'Add Multiple Folders...' option in the 'File' menu item.

Step 3: Add the fully qualified path of each server/SAN drive/share, one per line and then click OK.

Step 4: NXPowerLite will check whether the current user can access each of the top level server/SAN drive/share. Drives that are inaccessible will appear greyed out.

Now you are ready to either Scan (NXPowerLite Quick Scan) or Optimize (NXPowerLite for File Servers)
