How-To use Connect To Server with Spaces in the Windows share name


I want to use Connect To Server to connect to My Documents on a Windows XP machine, how do i enter a share name with a space in the name?

I tried My%20Documents and My"\040"Documents but neither work.

thanks
Bobby

What about "My Documents" or simply My Documents ?
or My\040Documents


Can you browse the network and connect that way ?

My\ Documents should work. The \ escapes the <space> after it.
