directory on IIS 7.5 and <img src="relative/path"


I have a web application on IIS 7.5 and i have a folder having htmls and images which lives in another drive (other than IIS application context).

Obviously when I try to refer those images in those htmls, web application searches for its own context (C:\inetput\wwwroot\webapp)

Is there a way to use a relative path in those htmls so that once my application calls those htmls, images won't get broken?

create a virtual directory that points to the images folder on the other drive underneath the html files location and now you can use images\imagename.ext or ~\images\imagename.exe  in the url

match images with the name of the virtual directory
