Hi,

You mentioned IIS does not support network drive, what are you refering to?

You can us UNC based content which means you can locate the contents of your application on  remote but there are some issues that you need to take into consideration, such as caching, etc to enhance the performance.

I have done this kind of confiuration many times, whereby teh content such as images, that are shared by my web server farm are located on a share storage. All I did was to create virtual directory to this path.
 
Let me know if you need more infoemation.

Let's hope you didn't corrupt anything when you tried that, with NTFS the MFT is cached in RAM so if one system writes a file the other one will not know it is there and overwrite it when it wants to write a file.
