Windows 7: setting up a server for school help (windows server 2008)

windows 7 professional 64x

What I meant by a video is a tutorial on setting up that network drive. It would be easier for me to process then a written how to guide.

here is a screenshot

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 ; Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

You've done it, though it isn't set up for each individual users home area if you will. What is the mapped drive for?

Your recording did not come through so I do not know exactly what the mapped drive is needed for

Hopefully I have attached a step by step problem step recorder on how to setup a mapped drive of your choice and apply to computers.

Many Thanks,
