Link to unc paths


#1

Hi All

I’m trying to link to a local or network path from my test case.

ie… \fs1\PVG\Import\AVCHD or c:\data\import

How can I do this ??

Thanks

IAN

Hello Ian,

Thanks for your posting. You can link to local resources as follows:

file://///fs1/PVG …
file:///c:/data/import

This is not supported/enabled by every browser by default and you may need to enable this in the browser options first.

Regards,
Tobias

Hi. I know it’s 5 years ago, but can you please elaborate on this method ?

Ian, did you figure out how to get this sorted on Chrome yet ? If so : how ?
Also, have you managed to get it working where files or filepaths have spaces in the name ?

Thanks,
Dónal
