Hi all,

I would like to use this connector with a SharePoint Remote Folder (it seems like another current remote folder: \\host\folder). I have been trying with a local filesystem and I have no problems but I am not able to make it work against this kind of file system.

Is it possible?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi jbernal,

At this moment connector depeneds on classes FileInfo and DirectoryInfo. So, if you can get DirectoryInfo from your ShapePoint directory than you can use it.
I found helpful link, it maybe helps
string dirPath = Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPUtility.GetGenericSetupPath("LAYOUTS\YourFolder");
DirectoryInfo dir = new DirectoryInfo(dirPath);

FileSystemDriver driver = new FileSystemDriver();
driver.AddRoot(new Root(dir));

Hi Evgeny,

Thanks a lot for your reply and sorry about the delay.

ElFinder works perfectly with a sharepoint remote folder because as you wrote, DirectoryInfo and FileInfo are available and they work fine.

Unfortunately, now I am having problems with the folder access because everything work ok with the Visual Studio Development Server but I am not able to use the correct credentials in the IIS due to it uses SYSTEM account. But this is a different issue...
