Mapping Network Drives - Windows Users
- Ensure that you are logged into to the Tufts LAN and have an active connection to the Tufts LAN (130.64.*.*).
- Right-click once on either your My Computer or My Network Places icon (Network Neighborhood in Windows 2000) on your Desktop. Select Map Network Drive … from the pop-up menu.
The Map Network Drive dialog box will open.
- Click the Drive: down-arrow and select a drive letter that isn’t already being used. You may select anything that is free, but it’s simplest to use P: for your personal share and Q: or R: for your departmental share.
- Under Folder:, type the path to the remote server location of your directory. You can also select the down-arrow to see if the path is cached. If so, select it.
P: drive path: \\titan\your-UTLN
Q: drive path: \\tftmas1\your-departments-name

If this is a mapping that you will use daily, place a check mark in the Reconnect at logon box.
This will create a persistent drive mapping that will remain visible in My Computer (see below).
- Click Finish. An Explorer window will open, displaying your files and folders. You should also see your new drive mapping listed when you browse.
