Hello,

We have a small office network consisting of 4 computers. Computer A is the main computer. Computers B and C have had the drive mapped so that they can access datta on computer A. This was done by a computer guy. I would like to try and make it so that I can access the data on computers B and D from Computers A and C.

In a nutshell I would like to know how to map a drive correctly..step by step.

Can anyone help or perhaps direct me to a good tutorial? We are us XP.

Many thanks

Constantine

First to do is to make sure that the folder that you wish to have mapped onto the systems is shared and with permissions so that it can be used.

Next is to goto the machine where the mapped drive needs to be added and right click on My Computer. Select Map network drive from the options.

Then when it asks for the destination type \\Computer A\Shared folder name\
Then Select the drive letter you wish to map it to.

That should then have the drive mapped for you.
