How to display files in a web page?

I have inherited a web page that displays files from a windows share with the following code:
<a href="file://share/directory/"> A Directory of Files</a>
This seems like an old-school method. Can anyone comment on if this is still en vogue?

The reason I ask is because one user clicks on the link and suddenly loses access to folders from the share... Naturally it appeared to be a permissions issue, but the problem is not obvious. If the user clicks on the link, the folders disappear. If the same user attempts to access the same location via a mapped share to a drive letter, there is no problem...

How would you make a directory of files available via a web page that exists on a Windows share/IIS website?
