Overview of Mapped Drives
Per default, two drives are mapped:
- Your home directory (H:)
Your Home Directory at D-ITET (H:)
This is where you should save your data. Your Windows user profile is also stored on this home directory. A scheduled backup job saves this data every night.
Find Your Data (S:)
An overview lists all network shares of D-ITET on which you have at least read permissions.
Mapping your home directory provided by ID
If you are a student and use a ISG.EE managed Windows workstation, your home directory will be provided by us. If you still want/need to access the home directory you used at Hauptgebäude, you can map it yourself.
Mapping via Windows Explorer
Open Windows Explorer, click on "Computer", in the toolbar click on "Map network drive"
- In the next window, provide the following information:
- The drive letter. Select it from the dropdown list
The path to your home directory. This is \\d.ethz.ch\users\<initial_of_your_username>\<your_username> e.g. \\d.ethz.ch\users\t\testuser
Whether you want the drive to reconnect at a later logon. Check or uncheck that checkbox.
Mapping via the command line
For mapping the drive via the command line, open the cmd.
Type the following command:
net use * \\d.ethz.ch\dfs\users\<initial_of_your_username>\<your_username> /persistent:yes
This will do the following:
- The "*" will use the last available drive letter to map the drive
- The option /persistent:yes will re-map the drive at a later login.
