Drive Mapping


  1. Visit the site that you wish to map a network drive for.


  2. Copy and paste the URL out of the address bar and it will be something like the one below https://cobwebexchange2010.spsite.com/Uploading%20a%20document/Forms/AllItems.aspx?I nitialTabId=Ribbon%2EDocument&VisibilityContext=WSSTabPersistence


  3. You will now need to shorten the URL to so it just shows the string which is needed, like the example shown below.


    https://cobwebexchange2010.spsite.com/Uploading a document


  4. Go to My Computer, right click and select Add a network location.
