One way to share links to networked files
Authored by: Sesquipedalian on Mar 23, '09 08:08:18AM

I use Quicksilver, so all I would need to do is select the file in Quicksilver, run the Get File URL action, and then run the Paste action. VoilĂ , a proper link is pasted.

Also, getting the file path is not sufficient for the original poster's purposes. He wants a clickable link, so he need the file URL. A file path looks like /Volumes/server1/path/to/file. A file URL (for a file on a mounted network volume) looks like file://localhost/Volumes/server1/path/to/file
