    Re: How to map network drives ??

    Microsoft Windows Users

    1. Open Microsoft Explorer.
    2. From Explorer, click the Tools drop down menu and click the option "Map Network Drive."
    3. Specify the network drive or network computer as the folder. Below are two examples.

    4. If the computer's name was hope, to map to that computer, type \\hope

    5. If you wished to map to a shared folder on the hope computer such as a mp3 folder, you would type \\hope\mp3.
    6. If a different username or login is required to connect to this computer or drive it must be specified in this window before clicking the finish.


    Windows users may also map a network drive through MS-DOS by using the "net use" command and following the below steps.

    1. Open a MS-DOS window by clicking Start, Run, and typing "command" and pressing enter.
    2. Type a similar command to what is shown in the example below. In the below example, the "z:" represents the drive letter the new share will become, and the \\computer\folder is an example of the shared network path.

    net use z: \\computer\folder

    Hi,
    Just do thefollowing:

    1. Open a MS-DOS window by clicking Start, Run, and typing "command" and pressing enter.
    2. Type a similar command to what is shown in the example below. In the below example, the "z:" represents the drive letter the new share will become, and the \\computer\folder is an example of the shared network path.

      net use z: \\computer\folder
    Note: If the network computer or folder is not available or offline you will not be able to map. To determine what computers and shared folders are available, open "Network Neighborhood" or "My Network Places", or if you know the name of the share you can also type it in the Run line to see if it is accessible.
    Note: When opening or mapping a network computer or folder you must use theback slash adn not the forward slash...
    Hope this helps...

    Re: How to map network drives ??

    Open Windows Explorer or My Computer from the Windows Start Menu.


    From the Tools menu, click Map Network Drive…. A new Map Network Drive window opens.


    In the Map Network Drive window, choose an available drive letter from the dropdown list located next to the "Drive:" option. Any drives already mapped will have a shared folder name displayed inside the dropdown list, next to the drive letter.


    Type the name of the folder to map. This name must follow UNC. Alternatively, click the Browse… button to find the correct folder by browsing available network shares.


    Click the "Reconnect at login" checkbox if this network drive should be mapped permanently. Otherwise, this drive will un-map when the user logs out of this computer.


    If the remote computer that contains the shared folder requires a different username and password to log in, click the "different user name" hyperlink to enter this information.


    Click Finish.


    If the drive letter was previously mapped to a different location, a message box will appear asking to replace the current connection with the new one. Click Yes to disconnect and un-map the old mapped drive.


    If the Finish operation succeeds, the network drive will be mapped. If the network drive cannot be mapped, ensure the folder name is spelled correctly, that this folder was correctly set up for sharing on the remote computer, that (if necessary) the correct username and password have been entered, and that the computer network connections are functioning properly.
    Tips:


    To disconnect a mapped network drive, use the Tools/Disconnect Network Drive… option in Windows Explorer, or right-click on the folder in My Computer and choose the "Disconnect" menu option.
