I am trying to move data up into my storage container. However, the data is on a remote storage platform, and I can only access it remotely. However, storage explorer will not see my internal network drive locations to pull the data from. Has anyone found a workaround for this?

    Hi,

    I am 100% not sure if this will work, but this is what I would do:

    You could create a folder on your local drive and set it up with a symbolic link.

    A symbolic link will allow you to link two folders together, making it appear as if your share is on your local PC to many applications.

    Note: Make sure you test this with empty folders first before starting to look into shares with data.

    Refer: The Complete Guide to Creating Symbolic Links (aka Symlinks) on Windows

    Refer: Linkshell Extension
