Dear friends,

I am using windows server 2008 named : win2008 , no AD or DC
I have a shared folder on D drive: \\win2008\public\Sales
Sales folder is too large and coming full. I have installed a new drive and assigned drive letter: E

I want to move Sales folder to new drive E, but still want user able access via previous network path: \\win2008\public\Sales. Is there any solution?

Because in Sales folder have many doc/excel file link to pictures and other files.

Thanks a lot for any help.

Hi :welcome:,
I suppose you don't want to use the all drive E: only for the Sales folder?
If not the first case then move the Sales folder from inside Public to the new drive and create a new junction inside Public pointing to the new location. Make sure you open the Command Prompt in the Public folder and then type the mklink command.
mklink /J Sales E:\Sales
