# Boost :

Hi,

I am trying to use boost filesystem to copy files from a local directory to
a directory on a network server (the latter having a path like
\\databaseserver\c\$\importfiles\myTabledump.txt
<file:///\\databaseserver\c\$\importfiles\myTabledump.txt> )

Unfortunately the leading double backslashs (\\) get converted in the
constructor of filesystem::path to double slashs - yielding a different
meaning.

Is there a way to copy files on windows to network servers like this?

Regards,
