Using .net c# to build 2 separate websites and they both need access to a folder on the windows server which contains image files. So file reference would have to go to root and then out to folder ..root/sharedfolder/image/
In addition whilst the websites are being developed, I would like to be able to access the folder but the local development doesn't use IIS, if that is used a s solution to first part.
Is there a better way than to set up the folder as a separate websites and reference access to the image files by reference to http://www.sharedfolder.co.uk/image/imagerequired334.jpg
Help very much appreciated
