accessing pc's on same network

By jimmy ·
How do i access a pc's local hard-disk on the same network through the command prompt.
I basically want to access their local hard-dirve on their pc without having to go down to their PC.

If the PC has the name computer1 for eg.
I know it is something like /pc1/C$
could someone please give me the correct syntax for this.

Many thanks in advance

You could map a drive to their computer. At the command prompt type:

net use * \\computer1\c$ /user:"USERNAME" "PASSWORD"

The * means that Windows will pick any available drive letter to map the drive. Instead of the * you could select your own drive letter by just typing L: for instance. Then the drive would be mapped as the L: drive, or whatever letter you pick. USERNAME and PASSWORD should not include the quotes. The syntax should all be on the same command line.

What you're looking for in the example above is:

\\computer1\C$

which will access the C: Drive administrative share on computer1

Hope this helps.
