Hi @Jordan Mayes 

Do you want to only insert the link or actually embed the shared drive into a Confluence page?

Hi @Teodora V thank you very much for getting back to me.  I wanted to create a link which would open a specific area of File Explorer from a shared drive.

Hi @Jordan Mayes 

If your users have access to the area, I don't see a problem for you to link this as a very basic page link (it would open the link in a new window and redirect to your shared drive).

If you want to have a clearer view of the shared folder and embed an actual folder in your page, then you may need a 3rd party app like SharePoint Connector or Team Files.

Hi @Teodora V

Thank you for the response.  Yes all users have access to the shared drive.  Is there anything that I need to add to the link?  At the moment when I copy the link from File Explorer when I select it I get the following page open: about:blank#blocked.  Do I need to add anything to the link? 

 

Thank you.

Hi @Teodora V 

 

I needed to enable the Google Chrome Add On's as explained here.  Thank you.

That's great @Jordan Mayes, thank you for sharing! I was starting to think this is a more complex issue :) Glad that you resolved your problem.

Thank you.  It does still open the file location from the Browser rather than File Explorer.  I can work with this, unless you have a better solution?
