Map Personal Drive

An easy way to move files to and from your website from on campus is to "map a drive" to your personal web site on your computer. "Mapping a drive" establishes a short cut between your computer and the server.

  1. Go to the Start Menu.
  2. Choose My Network Places.
  3. Click Add a Network Place.
  4. When the wizard opens, click Next.
  5. Choose Choose Another Network Location and click Next.
  6. In the Internet or Network Address box, enter:
    \\novaweb\home\yournetworklogin
  7. Click Next.
  8. Enter a name for your new mapped drive.
  9. Click Finish. Your computer will probably open a new window when the drive is finished. Once the new window is open, you can simply drag and drop files into and out of the window.
