Server Backup to UNC network path (not drive letter - Windows)

Im guessing this is one for this is one for Windows server admins but enlightenment from any source will be much appreciated.

I would like to schedule FileMaker Server 14 backups to our File & Print server which sits on the same network.


Is it possible to backup my databases to the UNC file path here...

\\myFPserver\FMBackup\Filemaker\ 


Using a path that looks something like this

filewin:/myFPserver/FMBackup/Filemaker/


All the UNC path variations I have tried do not validate.

Im guessing UNC paths are not supported and we are still stuck having to map and use drive names?


Thanks

Paul
