Before you start mapping you need to make sure that the Storage you are going to map is Being shared in the Network. You can map an Additional Hard Drive, a partition, a folder, or an External Hard Drive
- Share the Storage and set the proper permissions.
- Click Windows Start Button, Right click Computer.
- Select the Reconnect at Logon check-box. Which means the drive will still be mapped even after you restart the computer.
- Click Map network drive.
- Select the Drive Letter (I chose Z in my Video Tutorial), Type or Browse to the Server Share, Check Reconnect at Log-on Box if you want the Mapping to be persistent (remain after a reboot). Click Finished when finished.
