ASPX directory listing

I've got the following script which lists the files in a directory and creates a link to them, but they are located in another folder.  When clicking on the link, it assumes the file is in a different folder.

How do I modify this to reflect the files being in another folder from the script?

Many thanks.

Better add the script here:

 <%@ Import Namespace="System.IO" %>
<script language="VB" runat="server">
  Sub Page_Load(sender as Object, e as EventArgs)
    Dim dirInfo as New DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("Resources/alerts/"))
   
    articleList.DataSource = dirInfo.GetFiles("*.pdf")
    articleList.DataBind()
  End Sub
</script>

<asp:DataGrid runat="server" id="articleList" Font-Name="Verdana"
      AutoGenerateColumns="False" AlternatingItemStyle-BackColor="#eeeeee"
      HeaderStyle-BackColor="Navy" HeaderStyle-ForeColor="White"
      HeaderStyle-Font-Size="10pt" HeaderStyle-Font-Bold="True">
  <Columns>
    <asp:HyperLinkColumn DataNavigateUrlField="Name" DataTextField="Name" HeaderText="File Name" />
    <asp:BoundColumn DataField="LastWriteTime" HeaderText="Date Saved"
        ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center" DataFormatString="{0:d}" />
  </Columns>
</asp:DataGrid>

Add below attribute inside the HyperLinkColumn

datanavigateurlformatstring="~\Resources\alerts\{0:d}"

and remove the DataFormatString property

Change the line

Dim dirInfo as New DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("Resources/alerts/"))
to
Dim dirInfo as New DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("Resources/alerts/"))

Typo... It should be:

Change the line

Dim dirInfo as New DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("Resources/alerts/"))
to
Dim dirInfo as New DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("../Resources/alerts/"))
