Mapping Network Drives

You can map your H: drive (Home directory) and S: drive (Share directory)

 
Mapping H: Drive 
Steps required Screen shots

When you map your H: drive, you will need to specify the UNC path, as per your H drive at work.
For example. The H drive of user bloggsj2 is shown on the right →
This user's UNC path would be:
     \\c-fs1\userdata01\b\bloggsj2

 

 

Windows Explorer makes it very easy to map a drive, and your credentials will be remembered between connections. Open Windows Explorer.

Click 'Computer' (left side list)

On the toolbar, click 'Map network drive'




Choose a letter for this drive; next to 'Drive' click the down-arrow and select the letter you want (you can choose any letter so long as it is not already in use by another drive. Choose H if you can, otherwise any one you like)

You can’t (easily) browse for the drive, so you will have to type the UNC path into the 'Folder' box. Type your UNC path, as per your H drive at work, as explained above. 
Eg.  \\c-fs1\userdata01\b\bloggsj2

Check (tick) the 'Connect using different credentials' option, then click 'Finish'

You’ll be prompted for your Lincoln University username and password. Type LU\ and then your username in the username field. Check the 'Remember my credentials' option if you want to connect automatically in the future

Once connected, your H: will be visible in Windows Explorer under "Computer" → "Network Location'

 

Mapping S: Drive (Share directory)
Steps required Screen shots

When you map your S: drive, you will need to specify the UNC path: \\c-fs4\LUShare
Where c-fs4 is the server name.

Windows Explorer makes it very easy to map a drive, and your credentials will be remembered between connections. Open Windows Explorer.

Click 'Computer' (left side list)

On the toolbar, click 'Map network drive'




Choose a letter for this drive; next to 'Drive' click the down-arrow and select the letter you want (you can choose any letter so long as it is not already in use by another drive. Choose S if you can, otherwise any one you like)

You can’t (easily) browse for the drive, so you will have to type the UNC path into the 'Folder' box. As explained above, type \\c-fs4\LUShare

Check (tick) the 'Connect using different credentials' option, then click 'Finish'

You’ll be prompted for your Lincoln University username and password. Type LU\ and then your username in the username field. Check the 'Remember my credentials' option if you want to connect automatically in the future

Once connected, your S: will be visible in Windows Explorer under "Network Location'. You will be able to see many folder, but you can only see files in folders you have rights to.
