Default Path to a server on LAN

Hello I was wondering how I could specify a oath to a directory on a local server in our network. I have been doing this

DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo("\\NEtwork\\Server\\Directory");

Oh I think I figured out the problem, I needed an '@' character before the first quotation ie

DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(@"\\NEtwork\\Server\\Directory");

Yes that will work, but the problem in your original post is that to access a UNC path from windows you need to literally type:

\\network\server\directory
the way that your string equates in your OP is:
\network\server\directory
what you should of done was:
\\\\network\\server\\directory\
I think you will find that that way works rather nicely. =]
