NOTE: An 'Invalid Path Specified' error occurs when the path specified in the SMB repository settings doesn't match the path to the server.

A UNC Path is used when scanning to SMB

An Example of a 'Uniform Naming Convention' or UNC Path for an SMB share on a Windows server machine is:
\\SERVER\SHARE\FOLDER
Where SERVER is the file server name, SHARE is the name of the actual SHARED Folder, and FOLDER is the folder structure within the share where scanned files will reside.
