  1. To create a new mapped drive, select the check box for the drive letter you want to use. If you are modifying an existing mapped drive, you can change any of the elements described in Steps 2 and 3.
  2. Type the local file system path or drive that you are mapping to the drive letter in the corresponding field.
  3. Select the dropdown list and select a level of access:

Note: When you connect to the server, you may find that the local drive or path is not mapped to the drive letter you assigned. This happens if you map a drive or path to a letter already used by a local drive on the server. Your drive is mapped to a new drive letter, starting at V and counting backwards.

Warning: The client cannot lock local files. To prevent file corruption, do not access the same file with two or more applications at the same time.
