Windows 7: Manually mapping a drobo as a network drive

Manually mapping a drobo as a network drive

Morning all,

Long time browser, this forum has helped me loads over the past. Hopefully someone can help me with my problem.

I have a Drobo B800fs (network attached storage device) which has worked perfectly for a number of years. A couple of days ago I deleted circa 50% of the information from it and now it has gotten annoyed and won't mount.

I have contacted Drobo support and they have advised that I can map the drive manually within Windows Explorer, this is where I get stuck.

I am not sure of the syntax which I type to map the drive. I know that it is connected to my network on the ip address but I am unsure of what "/", the server name etc.. to type? It also has a user name and password enabled (which I obviously know) so I guess I need to type that in also.

If anybody can help I will be eternally grateful.

Mapping a network drive problem.
This makes no sense. I have always had 2 cpu's on a network. My main rig, and a "server". (Basically a storage and backup cpu). Well I just built a new rig, and installed Win 7 RC. Re formatted my old "main" rig to become my new "server". I still had the old "server" (Win XP) connected to the...
