web drive

I would like to create a drive like (x:\) when the user logs into the site,
so the user can save things on the site.

freddy,

What do you mean by logs onto the site? Are you referring to a web
site? If this is the case, that is HIGHLY unlikely. First, you would have
to expose your machine to whatever network was attaching to it. Second, you
would need a managed control with unmanaged code permissions, or an active x
control to perform the mapping. Last, you couldn't just assign it to x
because x might already be taken.

If you want to transfer files from to a website, then you will have to
deal with uploading them through a form.

Hope this helps.

Do you mean you want a web page to alter the file system on the client
machine? If you could persuade your users to accept a hideously low
security zone, you might be able to do it with an ActiveX control, but
I don't think you could sensibly do it in C#, and I don't think it's
really a good idea anyway.
