UniDrive on Windows Vista

Step one

Press the Start (Windows Logo) button then click on ‘Computer’.

Press the Start button then click on Computer

Click on ‘Map Network Drive’ at the top of the window.

Click on 'Map Network Drive'

Step two

Click on the drop down menu next to ‘Drive’ - this will produce a list of the Drive letters you can choose from.

NOTE: Usually a ‘Home’ drive (like your Student Network Folder) would be given the letter ‘H:’, and a shared area (like any other folders you’ve been given access to) would be given the letter ‘S:’ If those letters are available, use them here.

In the ‘Folder’ field, enter the URL of the server you wish to connect to:

Ensure ‘Connect using different credentials’ is ticked.

If you are using a personal computer, make sure the ‘Reconnect at logon’ box is ticked.

Select drive letter and enter connection details

Select ‘different user name’.

Step three

Enter your credentials when prompted.

NOTE: The Username is your student number (eg. 12345678) and the Password is your Pheme password

Enter your credentials

Click ‘OK’ and then click ‘Finish’.

You are done!

The Network Folder will now launch.
You can navigate to it through ‘Computer’.
