We want to offer some file storage capability in our asp.net 3.5 web app and would like users to create web folders by mapping to a particular URL [hosted on our IIS]. this will allow users to simply copy files from their systems to the mapped web folder and save them the task of uploading files, etc. Any ideas on how we can implement a webshare capability on webserver would be really appreciated.
What about FTP (FTPS)? In FTP Publishing service (ISS7 Extension) you can write your own authentication provider based on .NET Membership, or you can use same provider, which you are using in you web application. You can also extend the built-in functionality of this sevice to customize it's functions.
If you want to make an user interface in asp.net site, you can use System.IO classes to manage files.
