Off-list reply, because you're off-topic, and Tommie doesn't like that...

Two slashes is always wrong, but some software tolerates it. You want either
one slash or three. There's technically a difference but in practice they
are equivalent.

With the file:/ or file:/// prefix you have a rooted (absolute) path.
Without any prefix you have a relative path, for example scan0001.tif
selects a file in the same directory as the current document (the one
containing the link).
