Mapping a Network Drive
0 out Of 5 Stars
Mapped drives are a way to connect your computer to a shared folder on SIU’s File Server. Connections to shared folders require an internet connection AND an active (connected) connection to SIU’s VPN. Mapping a drive from a personal computer is discouraged since it requires saving SIU credentials to reconnect when the computer reboots.
