This method is obsolete. See the Remarks section below.


The Utilities.ExpandUNCFileName method converts the given relative file name into a fully qualified path name. For network files, this function returns a fully qualified path name using the Universal Naming Convention (UNC). This convention suggests that a UNC file name includes the name of the network resource to which the drive is mapped, instead of the drive prefix.
