We have a powershell script that takes a UNC path file (\\fileshare\folder\file.txt), and uploads it to an FTP site. Even though the exists (we can access by pasting the path to a Windows File Explorer window), we get: No file(s) matching \\fileshare\folder\file.txt found. We know the WinSCP interface does not support UNC, but we thought scripting did.
The script works with a local drive.
Is it the case that UNC paths just won't work?

UNC path should work in scripting.

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, set Session.SessionLogPath. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
