Physical path

Configures the physical path where the site content is stored. The content can reside on the local computer or come from a remote share. If your content is stored on the local computer, type the physical path, such as C:\Content. If your content is stored on a remote share, type the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path, such as \\Server\Share, and then optionally click Connect as to specify credentials to connect to the share. If you do not provide credentials to connect to the remote share, the server will use pass-through authentication and connect by using the application's user identity.
