I have a cloud windows server 2012. I have a documents server which I have created a map path to D:/
(UPDATE: I can even create a directory on C:/KILL and the same problem. It's not finding the directory/files from the physical path. When I do this locally, it works fine. Just not on the server.)

I have created a virtual directory in IIS and I can see the files in the virtual directory. They exist.

But when I run the web application from a browser, and try to access that directory by going to one of the image files via the URL, it can't find anything. If I try to access via a physical path, D:/Documents/ it also does not find it that way either.

This is a Rackspace server on the cloud. Does anyone know if there are settings we need that we're missing?

virtual directory in IIS with files showing
If I try to go there directly through my URL, like so:
I get this error:
500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

if I go through the physical path, it doesn't seem to recognize anything there either.

Any ideas?
