===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]
