How to Connect to Your Home and Share Drive for Windows

Overview


The home drive allows University employees network storage for backing up Saint Peter's-related files. Files stored on your Home drive can only be accessed by you will on the Saint Peter's network, also you cannot grant access to anyone else. The shared drive is intended for Departmental files that need to be shared/referenced. In most cases, these drives appear automatically, and they do not need to be mapped. On Windows 10, you can check if they are by typing in the search on the bottom left "This PC" - Clicking on This PC - looking under network locations. On Windows 7, you can check this by typing into the search on the bottom left  "Computer" - Clicking on computer - looking under network locations. Now we will add these drives.
