Adding a mapped drive

To access, share and save documents to your cloud hosted server, you will need to add a mapped drive to your computer. To add a mapped drive follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your user account on your PC
  2. Open File Explorer
  3. Select ‘This PC’
  4. At the top of the window, click on ‘Computer’ and then ‘Map network drive’
  5.  The ‘Map network drive’ dialogue box will open.  Choose a drive letter – the drive letter selected doesn’t matter
  6. Enter the path of server and folder.  This will be the IP of your cloud server and then the name of the folder. It will look something like this:  \\316.2.64.87\shared
  7. Select the option to ‘Reconnect at sign-in’ and ‘Connect using different credentials’.  Enter the username and password that we have provided as your server login.
  8. Click ‘Finish’ and the folder will open to confirm that it has been set up correctly
