  1. In the Drive list, select a drive letter. (Any available letter will do.)
  2. In the Folder box, type the path of the folder (i.e. \\Sage\Shares). To connect every time you log on to your PC, select the Reconnect at sign-in check box.
  3. Select Finish.

Requesting Access

If you do not have access to a share you will need approval from the Director of that share (Shares are based on departments, and the Director of the department needs to approve the request). The Director will need to use the Network Drive Support form to put a request in with the Service Desk.
