# It's posible exclude VSS in Network Drive?

It is possible to exclude a network drive, for example when the drive is networked so that it does not VSS it and not error. (windows system)
Thanks for contributing any ideas.

Currently, network drives are identified only by their path prefix, not by their actual type.
To get rid of this error message you can use UNC paths (`\\host\share\somedir\`) instead of mapped drive letters (`R:\somedir\`).
And you can simply ignore this error message, it’s harmless.

Thanks for the answer, thank you very much.
