How do I map a network drive?

In this comment I will only tell the solution for Windows users but if you are not a user of Windows then, I really don’t know how to do it.
  • Open your Internet Explorer browser.
  • You will see tools tab, at the top of the browser click on it.
  • Click on Map network drive (if you do not have network drive then you will not see this option).
  • Now just write the name of what you want, for an example if the name is “Jhone” then write like this \Jhone.
  • Windows users can also map network drive by using “net use command”. Ok then that’s all.

How do I map a network drive?


Mapping a drive means sharing your drive to the network. Drives A & B are assigned to floppy disks and can never be shared. That is, if the server does have floppy drives A & B. But usually, servers in a Local Area Network remove their floppy drives because nowadays, floppy disks are becoming obsolete and will soon be replaced by USB flash drives.

If your LAN server doesn’t have floppy disk drives, you can therefore map letters A and B. Here’s how, using just your Windows Explorer.

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Click on Tools.
  3. Click on Map Network Drive… A new window will pop up.
  4. On the Drive option, click and choose drive A or B on the dropdown menu.
  5. On the Folder option, click Browse… then choose the shared folder on the network you want to connect to or just type the path. For example, \kindredg where \servershared name.
  6. Check the Reconnect at logon checkbox if you want that folder to be mapped every time you logon to your computer.
  7. Click Finish.

You will not see the letters A and B in the available drives if those letters belong to the floppy disk drives of the server. Always remember, floppy drives can never be shared.
