How to 'link' a folder on the hosting system to a share

We are running Alfresco as a classical document management and sharing application. So users permissions etc already well established so I am trying to extend this to a specific task.

This is a linux server running  the following version:
Installed Schema   1002
Installed Version   3.0.0 (Stable 1526)
Server Schema   2019
Server Version   3.2.0 (@build-number@)

I would like to know if the following scenarios is  possible:

I have a few files on the system in a given folder /var/opt/backup/current/current_data_results

The file current_data_results (and a few more there) are actually current dumps of queries from a database generated in a certain intervals and copied there.

So uploading from the GUI is not an option.

Now, I would like to share this folder with the current files among  a group of Alfresco users for further analysis processing what not in one of the space within the existing Alfresco space.

I am new to Alfresco so not sure how this can be done.  We do not care of the changes, only the latest  results are important for now.

How can I link an alfresco share to a folder like that. I am admin of both the server and the alfresco so filesystem permissions will be no problem.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.
