    Thanks

  • Not out of the box there isn't (not that I know of).

     

    If you want to build one yourself it should be pretty easy, using one of two methods:

     

    1) You can use the System.IO namespace to iterate through directories and display file information.

     

    2) You could define a network path as a Search Content Source, and then use the search API to get the file information easily.

     

    If you wanted a fully functional explorer view I would probably go with the first one though.

     

    The only major problems you are going to hit are security permissions.

    I'll leave you to work that one out though Wink
