Hi @Kavita Goswami , 

Its not possible to share a local drive in Confluence. However, you can link to directories on the shared drive.

You can refer to this link for additional information:

Additionally, you can look for any third party apps in Atlassian MarketPlace.



Thanks for replying Kiran, I have tried this  "file:///"  this doesn't work for me.

I want to share folder and sub-folder which is in my computer's H drive.

I tried using Team flies app on confluence but that doesn't support Window File Server.

There is no way to link to a resource that has a variable location and may not exist.  On your computer, it's quite likely you are using a variable IP address (dhcp) and sometimes, you might turn it off (and if it's a laptop, disconnect and move it)

Confluence (and any other server) can't refer to something that might not be there.  You need to upload these files to shared storage with a fixed name and point to that.  You will then need a client that can read that shared storage (As Confluence is not a file browser)
