I assume you mean on a local drive vs network drive.

Step one is to use the full path to tell Rev where to look to generate  
the list of files, one technique I use is

answer folder "choose your target folder"
put it into tFullPath
set the defaultFolder to tFullPath
put the files into tFileList
filter tFileList without ".*" -- invis files

(or put the detailed files into tFileList )

repeat for each line tFileName in tFileList
   put tFullPath & "/" & tFileName & cr after newFileLIst
end repeat

filter newFileList without empty
