Windows 7: Mapping a network drive

Mapping a network drive

Hi there,

it seems Microsoft has changed how to map a network. I can map a network drive fine in Vista but not in 7. It always connects as my current user, assistance would be great.

It goes like this:


And the $ at end of the share name is used when wanting to hide the share on the network.

Then you should be prompted for user-pass unless you are the same user-pass as the machine you are trying to map.

Able to map the network drive in windows 7 but when i tried to access the data within that drive no icons were shown but i know the data is there because on other computers running xp I can see the data on the same network drive.
