We switched from Sharepoint 2010 to Sharepoint 2007 for a few compatibility reasons, and maybe I'm just being stupid, but I can't figure out how to use the home drive.. I have the solution installed and deployed. now what? What do I click, and where, so that I can add the home drive to, say, the document center..

I should also mention that I've tried adding it as a web part, and if I browse, or search, I can't find it listed. HomeDrive.wsp is deployed, but how can I make it show up in the web part list?

Hi Matt,

Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to try out my Homedrive web part in 2010, but you are not the first person to request this so I will try and install and update the code accordingly.

Please stay tuned and an updated version will appear shortly.

Kind Regards

Scratch that, SamuelC has tried it out and has mentioned that it worked ok.

Thanks for your interest in the solution.  Out of interest, how are you using the web part?

We are trying to use the webpart as a way for teachers to be able to view their network files from outside the district (i work for a k-12 school district). I would think if this is set up on our sharepoint server, that even with UNC names put in for the network drive names, it should still show up outside of our network.


I just can't figure out, in Sharepoint 2007, how to get the solution to show anywhere. I can't see it in my web parts, even though the solution is deployed.
