Mapping a Drive for a PCTo map a Network Drive in a PC:
Once your access is approved to the USI web server, and you have web editing software installed on your computer, you will need to “map” your computer to your department folder on the web server. This new drive will give you access to the web pages and directories in your department. You will only need to map to the server once for each folder.
- Go to “My Computer”
- “Map a Network Drive” should be in your toolbar across the top, click that (Windows XP users will go to the “Tools” menu option, then “Map a Network Drive”)
- When the drive mapping dialog box appears, it defaults to a certain available drive letter. If you want to change it, do so.
- In the text box, type:
- Click “Finish” or “OK” at the bottom of the dialog box.
At this point you should see your files listed as the drive letter you selected in step 3.
