Rainmail Server User Guide
Mapping Drives-Windows 8

If a user accesses the same Share frequently from Windows, it will be convenient to map the Share as a Network Drive. Once done, the Share appears as a drive on the user's Desktop whenever logged onto the Desktop. A share can be mapped onto a drive as follows:

  1. Using Windows Explorer navigate to the Share to be mapped. You may refer to the section Network-Windows 8 on how to do the same. The Share will be displayed in the Windows Explorer window (as shown in the image below)
  • Right click on the Share to be mapped

  1. The following menu comes up. Click on Map Network Drive (indicated by the red oval)

  1. That will bring up the following window.
  • To make sure that the mapping persists across logins (even after an user logs in after a shutdown), choose Reconnect at sign-in option (indicated by the red oval).

  1. Click on Finish.
  2. The Share will be mapped to the specified drive and will appear in Windows Explorer (as indicated by the red oval). The list of folders/files in the Share is displayed in the right side panel. Files can be transferred to/from the Server using standard Windows file operations (Drag/drop, etc.)
