7.2. Map a Network Drive Revised

Click Windows Start or the Windows Orb

Click Computer

Click Map network drive

In the Drive: dropdown choose a drive letter that will help identify the drive. It is recommended to map manually created network drives alphabetically in descending order. For example Z then Y and so on. This will leave A-G for removable drives and G though T for logon scripts.

In the Folder: field enter the server name and fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the resource to connect to followed by a back slash "\" and the location of the files.

Select the option to Reconnect at logon

Select the option to Connect using different credentials only if the network resource you are connecting to is on a different domain or your logon credentials do not permit you to map the drive.

E.G. \\servername. FullyQualified.DomainName.edu

See the table below Credential Method 1 for examples.
