FAQ 6700Where are my network drives?

Users added since Sep. 2014 will not have network drives (shares) mapped to a letter. Instead, they will have shortcuts automatically created each tiime they login in "Network Location". One reason for this change is some people are running out of drive letters to map.

In File Explorer these shortcuts appear under the computer name following your M: drive. Here is a screen shot of where the shortcuts backup0, shop and test appear in File Explorer.

MatLab doesn't appear to like using drive shortcuts so drives will still need to be mapped to a letter to use MatLab. Let us know and we can map drives used for MatLab.
