http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hey all, I'm trying to mount a Windows share that contains white space and I'm not having any luck. Here's my mount command: Code: mount -t cifs //Server1/Shares/Not Shared -o username=jobee,password=MyPass /mnt/Windows I can mount my Shared share so permissions and such are all ok. I've tried enclosing the entire UNC path in quotes and worked my way down to just Not Shared. I've even used \040 instead of the white space but no joy. Googling this tells me people are using quotes or the \040 but they aren't working for me. Any ideas, suggestions or recommendations? Thanks, Joe B (HowTos)
