how to add a link to a specific network folder


Roberto Ferraro (812) | asked Jun 11 '14, 7:09 a.m.

can anyone tell me how to create a link to a specific network folder? I am trying to do it using the following format, by adding a “SVN revision” : “C:\datos\workspace”. I can add the link and try it and works opening a new explorer window, but when I save the item, the error message “invalid URL” appears and I can not save.

I have also tried using the “file://” method within a comment, but when I try to open the link, the explorer does not open. 

thanks in advance for your help

this works for me.

link = Related Artifact
test = foo
uri = file://d:/somefolder

Sam, thanks for your answer. I have tried but does not work. The link appears under "SVN revisions" but does not open the new explorer. Maybe it's a problem of the windows explorer? It is v 8.0

I would attach an image so you can see what I do, but I still can't (reputation <60)

if you open a command window and type

explorer file://drive:/foldername
(replace drive and foldername as appropriate)

does it open windows explorer?

and it worked with a unc name too

file:////machine/sharename/subfolder

Yes Sam, works with a physical drive and network drive also, and opens the folder in a new window.

thank you for your support.

sorry, I didn't ask, what UI are u trying to click the link from? Eclipse or browser?
if browser, which one & version?

I tried from eclipse.

neither open from browser (IE or Firefox).. I think this is browser virus protection

Sam, finally I understood that when you said "related artifacts" you meant another type of object. When I created one with the network folder drive, worked perfecty.

Thank you.
