I have a SharePoint Foundation 2013 sandbox and I am trying to create Links with the web app that is built-in.  Links to external web sites work fine.  When I create a link to a network server and folder location the link URL changes to add file:// to the beginning.

What s the best approach to allow users access to other folders not in SP?

You can use a page viewer web part and link to a folder.
The user must have NTFS permissions on this folder of course.
