I am trying to create a connection to an external folder but it does not appear as option.. any clue.
Pd. I have already added it as new drive and I can reach it from Windows Explorer but not from QMC
1) Try to make sure that your able to access shared folder from your qlik sense client installed machine
2) while creating connection folder just paste your share folder root like below
3) create folder and you able to access it.
Hope this helps you
I have already tried that, I am on the actual server when I paste the exact path I have on the server (Windows Explorer), it says Invalid path, even trying with the complete server name.
I am just wondering if I need to set something on the QMC?
Thanks and regards,
Hi Andres ,
Please use UNC windows path and do it on server not on accessing it from outside of server. It will work.

I have just tested on my demo box and yes you're right you can't see the mapped drive in the drive list but you can connect to it using UNC.
when you mapped to z: you would have pointed to a share....
what happens if you use that path that you used? ie \\machinename\share
I got invalid path errors when I entered the incorrect details of the UNC ie tried \\machinename\z$
