If you are working on a Windows computer that has not been imaged by University Technology, you can follow these steps to access your network drives.

These instructions are written for Windows 7; we will attempt to update to reflect Windows 10 steps ASAP.

  3. Hit Enter.
  4. At the login prompt, type "DREW-AD\username" (again, with your username) and your Drew password.

A Windows explorer window will open with your F: drive. You can now treat this as any other folder on your computer, copying and pasting files, etc, as needed.
