It should work with mounted network shares and UNC paths.  Try without
using any wildcards in the folder names.  You may have trouble with
folder* and similar.

Windows so-called "POSIX API" has some very weird limitations when
dealing with network mounted shares and UNC paths.  In some cases you
must have a trailing \ and in others you must never have a trailing \.
I've tried to deal with most of those cases but wildcards weren't on my
mind.  I have no clue how a wildcard might react.
