Read Adding file link defaulting to drive letter not we by frank @ 7/17/2015
Thanks Alex,

Sorry, I don't use Front Page that much.
It is 2003. The person I'm working with is looking at a folder list with in FP.
Which says it is her z:\ drive. When she selects a file and add's it to the web site the link is for the Z drive instead of the URL.
She said up until about 3 weeks ago when she added the file a URL link got created instead of the Z drive.
They have to go to the site and find the correct link and modify the published file in order for the users to access the file.

We have a pretty large company and she is getting bounced around, seems the knowledge base for Front Page is pretty low.
I ended up with her case, which is pretty much out of my scope, but offer to see if I could get an answer.

I appreciate any help you can offer.

It's been a while since I've used FP so can't remember the process needed off hand.
I tend to put documents I need in a folder on the server then link to them using a relative ref
href="/doc/file.pdf" etc

When a file is selected from the Z drive with in Front Page 2013 and the link is posted. It is being posted as z:\ instead of the HTTP:// link of the website. Is there a setting that changes the behavior?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Do you mean FP2003 or are you using Expression Web (FP replacement discontinued) or Visual Studio Express/Web Developer Express?

Are you uploading the file to the webserver first?
