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:
- 1) The drive letter. Select it from the dropdown list
2) The path to your home directory. This is \\d.ethz.ch\dfs\users\<initial_of_your_username>\<your_username> e.g. \\d.ethz.ch\dfs\users\t\testuser
- 3) 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.
