Remotely accessing files on multiple computers on FileMaker Network

Post

     Hello,

     I'm working with a database that needs to hold a huge amount of images and word docs and pdfs etc. Inserting them all into containers would probably cripple the database and make it huge, so I want to reference them all so things like word docs can just be double clicked on, edited and saved over.

     It would be perfect if dropbox could be used for this, but the file path to the dropbox folder differs on each computer despite them being synced. What is the most efficient way to do this? Do I need to store all of the files on a central server? Will that cost? 

     Thanks,

     Jon
