If I share a file which is i.e. located at
C:\share\somefile.txt to the network what happens when I call it on my computer this way
\\MYCOMPUTER-PC\share\somefile.txt. Does the communication flow over the network or does the OS recognize the file I want access is locally stored and goes through the file system without using the network?
There is a file:
C:\share\somefile.txt shared to the network.
Does the OS make a difference between this call
C:\share\somefile.txt and this
\\MYCOMPUTER-PC\share\somefile.txt when it's executed on the same computer it got shared from to the network?
