4. Click "Map Network Drive".

5. Pick a letter drive and type in the network path. When finished, click on "Finish".

  • When you reach this screen, you have an option to assign your network drive with a letter. Most users choose "T" which is why it is known as the "T Drive".

For example, the OTIS shared folder path would look like this:  \\upost\staff_otis
