Online Storage - Map a drive (Windows 7)

How to connect to network storage (J-Drive, S-Drive) on Windows 7 while on the UW-Platteville campus network.

  1. Open a new Windows Explorer window by double clicking on the computer icon on the desktop or from the start menu.  A shortcut is also simultaneously pressing the Windows logo key and "E"

  2. Click on "Map network drive"



  3. Select the drive letter you would like to map.  The example below shows how to map your user drive or J drive.  You must replace "last initial" with the first initial of your last name, and "NetID" with your campus username.  Other common drives to map on campus are:

    • Shared1 or S:  \\shared1.nw.uwplatt.edu\shared1
    • App1 or H:  \\app1.nw.uwplatt.edu\app1
    • User1 or J: \\user1.nw.uwplatt.edu\user1
    • Data1: \\data1.nw.uwplatt.edu\data1



  4. Enter your campus credentials and click "OK".


The network drive will now be listed in your Windows Explorer window.
