Computer folder & file path
C <colon> <whack> Windows <whack> System32 <whack> system.ini equals C:\Windows\System32\system.ini
A whack is also used after each folder in the folder path. In the example above, "Windows" and "System32" are the folder names in the path.
Lastly, "system.ini" is the file name listed last in the folder & file path.
Network folder path
<whack> <whack> ComputerHope <whack> Help <whack> Laptops equals \\ComputerHope\Help\Laptops
In a network directory path, the whack is used twice at the beginning of the path. Usually, the name of the networked computer containing the shared directory is listed after the first two whacks. In the example above, "ComputerHope" is the name of the network server.
After the server name, a whack is used again, followed by a directory name. If there are multiple directories in the network path, a whack is used between each directory name. In the example above, "Help" and "Laptops" are the directory names.
