Connect to your P-Drive or T-Drive on a Windows XP
Your T-Drive is a shared folder that you and others have access to. You may need to access your T-drive as a student worker, or perhaps as a student club officer. The P-drive is a personal folder that you can store files on. It provides a space for academic work or whatever else. Forget your laptop? No problem. If you save your work to the P-drive, then you can access it from anywhere at any time with an internet connection.
Prerequisites: Prior to connecting to network drives, you will need to establish a connection to the campus network.
Step 1: Open My Computer, click on the Tools menu, and select Map a Network Drive.
Step 2: In the Map Network DriveWindow, pick a letter for your drive (T: is often chosen for Team, and P: for Personal drives), and enter the file path for the network folder.
Step 3: The My Computer window will now display your T- or P- drive under Network Drives.
If you would like to create a shortcut for fast reconnect, drag the icon for your network drive to your desktop.
