I got the installation. I want to use a local hard drive for storage and let my users see the files already on this drive. This is a windows 10 machine running wampserver php 7.3.21 and apache 2.4.46. I was running another file sharing app that I was not thrilled with.
I need simple instructions for a simple person such as me!
Thanks in advance.

That's not supported, you need to upload the files into the user account to make them accessible to other users.

But my OS drive (where the wampserver and aurora live) is small, all of my content is on an external drive that has lots of room. Should I just run aurora from that drive?

Aurora Files stores all the files under data directory and you can move it to another filesystem location, just need to create inc_settings_path.php file in root directory of Aurora Files installation, with the following content:

Code:
<?php
$dataPath = '/new/location/of/data';


where $dataPath value contains filesystem path of data directory location, it can point to another drive too, e.g.:

Code:
<?php
$dataPath = "E:/data";


See Protecting data directory page for more info.
