# How to Map a Network Drive (Windows 7)

The following are steps to add a network drive.

You will need to know the folder's/drive's name and have permissions granted to access the drive before you can add it.

Network drives/folders are not named "T drive" or any other letter. It is a specific drive/folder name.

## 3. 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".
• The folder path must start with the prefix "\\upost\" followed by the network folder/drive's name.
• For example, the OTIS shared folder path would look like this:

\\upost\staff_otis

## 4. After you are finished, the network drive added should appear in the Computer window.

• For this example we used "\\upost\staff_otis" assigned to the "Z" drive.
• You can add as many network drives/folders that you have access too, however, please note that only one drive letter can be assigned a folder. If "T" is used then you will need to use another letter.
