Well that won't work. First you link to a local file. If the user clicks on it, the link is local for the visitor, so it would link to a file on the user-computer. Probably there is no such file. Second, this is not allowed in most browsers. You cannot link to a local file (using C:) unless the page is opened locally (with file:/// instead of http://).

What webserver do you use? Tomcat? If so you can simply create a mapping to that directory, and then use a relative path.
