Q: Can I add links to folders and files on my hard drive? I don't want to upload files to SharePoint.

This question was sent today by a user. Here is the solution:

You can use "Links" list to add links to your files and folders on a local drive. Add a "Links" list web part to your site and start adding links to your files and folders. When you click "Add new link" link, you are asked to enter a URL with "http://" prefix. You can add a link to your shared folder like this: \serverfolder (server is your machine name and folder is your folder name). Save this link. This link will take users to your shared folder. If you want to give a link to a file, use this format: \serverfoldermydoc.doc.
