Network drives-- Windows

The software available on this page will only work for:

  • Windows XP
  • Windows Vista**
  • Windows 7**
  • Windows 10

**If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you may need to bring your computer to the tech office or run the script below to make modifications to your registry in order to mount the remote drives. Click the link below and choose to run or open the file.

Click *here* for the registry fix!

(You only need to run the registry fix one time.)

For access to one of the network drives below, you'll need to fill in your NetID and download the batch file for that drive. (We recommend that you save it to your desktop.) You will only need to download this software once but you MUST RUN THIS CONNECTION SCRIPT EVERY SESSION you wish to access one of the network drives listed below from your machine.

NOTE: Out of building (even other campus locations) must use the DoIT VPN software before running the script.

Pick Server to Access:




NetID is the first part of your email address.

Please note that newer versions of Windows will warn you about the scripts you download and you may need to carefully read the warnings to run them and make the connection. Also, when prompted for your password, as you type it in, you will NOT be able to see the characters as you type, but it will be entered.
