Normally, I can add a link that points to my network drive from my team home site quick launch with no issue. Not now. I add a the link to my network drive to a folder and will not open. I know the link is right. I am using Edge that does not work but is my default browser. It works in IE but this browser is not my default. I thought about adding all documents into sharepoint library but there are tooooo many documents and folders.

My question is there a way to connect to my network drive in sharepoint without using a direct link as I normally do?


Microsoft Edge does not support the file:// protocol, which is why it doesn't work. You'll have to use another browser to meet your requirement. And no, a direct link using the file:// protocol is the only thing you can do.
