If you have a network drive but want to access it via the shortcut of library, such as a software repository then there is a workaround from Microsoft. This involves adding a local dummy folder and then remapping it as follows:
- Create another folder within that folder, for example c:\share\music.
- Select the subfolder you just created, tap or click the Home tab, tap or click Easy access, choose Include in library, and then select the library to which you want to add the folder.
- Delete the folder.
- Run CMD (Command Prompt) as administrator.
- Enter mklink /d, and then enter the path of the folder you just deleted and the path of the network folder. For example, mklink /d c:\share\music \\server\music. This creates what is called a symbolic link. (more info on symbolic link command here)
