This quote from the CDD help page...

For example, to include drives C, D, E, and the network volume \\server\dir1 in the database, use this command:
cdd /s cde \\server\dir1


...is incorrect. The command doesn't work, as this snippet shows:

===========
C:\wrk> *cdd /s cd \\dakar\d
Indexing cd
TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the path specified.
"C:\wrk\cd"
Indexing \\dakar\d

C:\wrk>
===========

The other two CDD examples work.

TCC 11.00.30 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] SP3

It's not a bug, it's an error in the documentation. When you include a
sharename, you have to break the drive names out:

Cdd /s c:\ d:\ \\dakar\d

(This is not new; it's behaved this way for several years.)
