Link to file in the parent folder

I have a folder, say C:\example\paper with a bib-file C:\example\1.bib.

I also have a tex file C:\example\paper\main.tex where I would like to put a link to 1.bib. I can put the whole path, of course, but I wonder if there is a method to put link for a parent folder C:\example from its subfolder C:\example\paper?

On a Unix system \bibliography{../1} works; it should also on Windows. –  egreg Sep 22 '11 at 9:39
Which Windows version and which filesystem (NTFS or FAT) are you using? –  Martin Scharrer Sep 22 '11 at 9:40
I use Windows 7 with NTFS. @egreg, your example works, thanks. Will you write it as an answer? –  Ilya Sep 22 '11 at 11:29
