      You mean a share I suppose?

      After you create a share and you set the correct permissions you can use on PCs the “map network drive” option.

      If you need this network share/drive to map on all PCs then the easiest way is to use a login script.

        You have setup a WinNT40 domain? If yes, put on NETLOGON share (default share on a PDC) a batch file like this:

        rem Start of login script
        net use Z: \\ServerName\ShareName /PERSISTENT:YES
        exit
        rem End of login script

        -Copy these lines in a text file and then save as “login.bat”.
        -Copy the login.bat file to the NETLOGON share
        -Use UserManager for domain to change/add in user profiles the option to run this file at logon.
        -tests

        If you don’t use a domain create a shortcut to this file on local startup menu of each PC.
