I have an MVC application running on the C: drive of my web server.  I need to access files on the same machine, but a different drive, located at D:\Files.

I can't find an example of how this is accomplished.  The FileManager demo uses the application content folder for file storage, so that is not much help in this instance.  I've searched this forum, google and SO but I can't find a working example of how this is accomplished.  Most of the answers I've found simply point back to the FileManger demo without any explanation.

I would certainly appreciate any insight you can provide for this topic.

Thanks!

Hello, Jason,

Indeed we don't have a published example in the matter, however, In order to achieve a specific binding, you change the virtual mapping in the controller to static ones: https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/filemanager (see ViewSource tab -> FileManagerDataController.cs)

The example above is using virtual mapping and absolute URLs, in order to utilize the storage of the project itself. That said, you would need to change accordingly the paths from the controller, in order to achieve the needed local binding.

Hope this would help. Let me know should you face any difficulties in the implementation process.
