Links to local files do not work in webbrowser

I'have a problem, I have made a intranet for a client. With links to local files as  *doc, *pdf & jpg.
I have make a link:  <a href="file:///G:/Maintenance/Schade/2018/example.jpg" target="_blank">photo</a>
But the link doesn't work. It seems that firefox and google chrome does not allow this. Does anyone know a solution?

thanks in advance
