If you are going to do this a lot, the best solution is to set up the share on the network device as a virtual disk on the local machine: this is called "mapping a network drive"

You then have a drive letter - "Z:" for example - which directly accesses the folder containing the files you are interested in, and you can treat is as a "normal" folder on your own computer. Windows will re-establish the link on power up, provided that the remote computer is available.
