While working on a demo
I wanted to have some file links to a share. This might sound odd, as normally data is placed inside SharePoint and not in share. But it makes some sense in this case (content of share is managed by another application).
So i copied the the file url from explorer, post it in my web browser. Which translates all the spaces in the url to %20, to gain a valid url
I then took a List added url column, and posted that url into it.
The strange thing is while i can browse to that share using syntax file:/// url using firefox and Iexplorer once placed in the list it doesnt work anymore
Any ideas why ?.
