Tonight I learned how to make a shortcut to a folder on a NAS box in Windows. Happy Christmas Eve!
mklink /d "c:\Users\echeng\Desktop\picturesnas" "\\freenas\medianas\pictures"
... will put a folder called "picturesnas" on my Desktop that points to the "pictures" folder in the "medianas" share on my FreeNAS box. I'm frankly incredulous that you can't just make shortcuts of this stuff from the normal user interface. I assume "ln-s" would also work in Windows Bash shell, but Windows-mounted network shares don't show up in bash, and I'd have to mount them again.
After you do this, you can stick that symlink "file" in any folder and then drag it to your Quick Access area.
You really can't make this stuff up.
