Someone at my workplace has gone to a lot of effort to create shortcuts to various files on our work server.
The idea is that every file lives in 1 place (and only 1 place) and duplication will become a thing of the past because duplicate files will be replaced by shortcuts which link back to the folder that contains the target file (with the exception of archives & work in progress (WIP), each and every document has its own folder*).
So all this work was done on the server - a new file structure and several shortcuts replaced only to find that the shortcuts don't work when people are logged on via ftp... logging in via ftp is par for the course as we have roaming consultants.
I'm guessing the shortcuts don't work because the required path changes depending on how you are accessing the folder structure, e.g:
Any suggestions as to how I can get the shortcuts working without introducing more complexity for either the end users or system admin?
Many thanks, Steve
* reason each document has its own folder is because sometimes when a file is moved (e.g. to archive) Windoze will redirect the shortcut so that it points to the same file instead of its replacement...
