===Important information to know before using this guide===
+
-
* [[Mapping A Network Drive]] means assigning it a Drive letter (commonly U:, M:, X:, or any other available letter) to a network share's full path which often begins with \\storage01.<br>
+
-
* You'll need your [[Campus Domain Account| Stevens account]] Information as authentication.<br>
+
-
* After the Drive is mapped it will appear as a link under 'My Computer.'
+
-
* If you are <b>OFF CAMPUS</b> you must establish a VPN connection first before mapping a network drive.
+
-
** Directions for setting up VPN on Windows 7 can be found [http://www.stevens.edu/itwiki/w/index.php/VPN_on_Windows_7_-_Tunnel_All_Traffic here]

=== Step 4 - Enter the Drive Name ===
+
-
If you read the article on [[storage01]] you will have an idea of what drives you can map. In this tutorial we will map the [[Storage01 Personal|Personal]] drive which has your username in the path, but you may wish to access [[Storage01 ms|ms]] or [[Storage01 Public|public]].

-
=== Step 5 - Use a different Username (skip if using a Campus Domain computer)===
+
-
If you read the article on [[Mapping A Network Drive]] then you may know that Stevens requires some authentication to access Network Drives. Windows will, by default, try to use your Windows log on name and password, which only works when using a Campus Domain computer. In all other cases you need to tell Windows to use your Stevens username and password.

Check the box next to '''Connect using different credentials'''

-
=== Step 6 - Enter Campus Domain Information (skip if using a Campus Domain computer) ===
+
-
To complete the mapping process, enter your Campus Domain user name and password.<br>
+
-
You must type '''campus\''' before your username, so if your username was ''jsmith'' you would type ''campus\jsmith''.
