    Linking to a different drive?

    Okay, here's what I need to do:

    I need to make a link to a folder on the company's intranet that is on a different drive than our index page (and website.) Our index page runs off of our "H" server, but I need a link to a folder on our "V" server. I tried linking to it like any other web page, but it won't work. Any suggestions?

    Here's what I have as the link right now, but it ain't swingin':

    "a href="V:\Folder_1"

    The desired destination folder is found at V:\Folder_1

    When I mouseover the link the status bar reads like this: file:///V:/Folder_1

    I think if I could get it to eliminate the "file:///" part it'd be okay, right?

    Thanks,

    This should work using file:///V:/Folder_1 as it is pointing to a file that doesn't reside on a webserver. Have you tried it out?

    Of course all users would have to have the V: drive exacty the same

    Yes, I've tried it in the development folder and it didn't work. The development folder is on the same server as the final website will be, so I assume it will work (meaning not work) the same way.

    It needs to be up on a server to work
