I'm creating Virtual Directories in IIS7 so that external people can browse various documents.

It's all looking good, except the browsing is in a dull text format. How can I create more of a "Windows Explorer" look and feel when they browse to the folder.

If you enable webdav on these folders then the users (with windows computers) can use windows explorer to access these folders just like a folder on their harddrive. You can map a network drive and use the url as path. Here is some more explanation Mapping windows drive


I would suggest taking a look at IT Hit's Ajax File Browser: http://www.ajaxfilebrowser.com/

It is a WebDAV client written in pure JavaScript that runs in IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari. It looks very similar to Windows Explorer and has lots of programming features: http://www.webdavsystem.com/ajaxfilebrowser/programming/
