NOTE: Usually a ‘Home’ drive (like your Personal Staff Folder) would be given the letter ‘H:’, and a shared area (like any other folders you’ve been given access to) would be given the letter ‘S:’ If those letters are available, use them here.

In the ‘Folder’ field, enter the URL of the server you wish to connect to:

Ensure ‘Connect using different credentials’ is ticked.

If you are using a personal computer, make sure the ‘Reconnect at logon’ box is ticked.

  • If you are using a personal computer, make sure ‘Remember my credentials’ is ticked. This means that you (or anyone else using this device) will be able to access the contents of this folder without entering a password 

You are done!

The Network Folder will now launch - you can navigate to it through ‘Computer’.
