Defining different shared file systems

Objective: I want to define several (shared) file systems from the same Alfresco tree so as to make mapping a network drive more easy (and so as to make the distance to the files of interest shorter).

Attempted solution: I edited "file-servers.xml".

Basically, I added the following lines:

      <filesystem name="Test">
         <store>workspace://SpacesStore</store>
         <rootPath>/app:company_home/Test</rootPath>
      </filesystem>

Where "Test" is indeed the name of a workspace below the company home space.

Outcome: The file system was recognized, but it started showing the space store from the top down, not from the Test subspace. Moreover the standard Alfresco file system was no longer available.

Obviously, I seem to have misunderstood the config file. Could anyone provide a working example? A full example of the <homeFolder name=“Home” /> feature would be appreciated as well. Does it have to be included in a <filesystem> configuration of its own?

Thanks

Ludo
