How to access a folder with spaces in the UNC path


  • hello,

    Can seem to find the answer on google. In an email I want to send a link to a folder but there are spaces in the folder path. For example, \\fillser01\documents\legal department\hr. I want a direct link to the HR folder in an email.

  • Try one of the following.

    Double quotes around the UNC:

    "\\fillser01\documents\legal department\hr"

    Replace space with %20:


    Brackets around the UNC:

    <\\fillser01\documents\legal department\hr>

    I think all 3 will work with outlook, but not 100% sure.
