  2. Select the letter "H" from the top drop down menu (or you may select a different drive letter if this one is already in use). In the folder box type: \\iuph\username$ (where "username" is your four letter student username).  For example, if you userid is abcd then you would type: \\iuph\abcd$ in the folder box.

  3. To ensure that the drive is available after the machine is rebooted, place a checkmark in the box labeled "Reconnect at Login", then click OK.
  4. Click on My Computer and confirm that the drive is mounted.  It should appear as "username$ on 'iuph'".
