For my daily work I'm searching a quick method or efficient tool to send by mail links to files stored on a server.
Actually I paintly use notepad to generate an UNC path to the file from Windows Explorer (copy folder's path from WinExplorer address bar then copy the filename, concatenate both and finally past all in my mail client -Outlook-).
Do you know any manner / tool than can help generated and send by mail UNC path to a specific file ?
PS : I have found a tool (I keep it secret for now) which is able to generated the UNC adress of the file (even for serveral files), but I want to know if there's something else on the "free market" before I give you my solution ... if finaly it's the best one.

You can also use a file manager like FreeCommander. Select one or more files then ALT+INSERT. The file names will then be ready to paste.

No answer to my request ?
So as promised I give you my solution for now : it's called "Piky Basket" and it's "Copy path to clipboard" option as shown here on it's official web site :
Be aware the latest version of this tool is part of a "charged" Suite but for my requested need (make an UNC link to a file) the old but free version 2.0 does the job and is even available in french.
Best regards to all,
