You will no longer use the red  icon in the Windows system tray  to gain access to your files on the network.  


Instead, double-click the “Login to N Drive” shortcut on the Windows Desktop. 

A window will appear requesting your JMU e-ID and password.


If your credentials are accepted, the N: drive will be opened for browsing.


If your credentials are not accepted, there may be a long delay, and you will receive an error message.  Simply repeat the procedure to try again.


Special Note About Lab & Classroom Faculty Folders: 

Lab and classroom faculty folders will be migrated to the new system on May 11.

PC Users:  If you were provided a JMU Faculty Folder by Lab Services, you will find it at N:\Labs\LS\Common\Faculty or N:\Labs\LS\Common\TechPC.  

Mac Users: The path to connect your Mac to faculty folders is smb://IT-Data3.ad.jmu.edu/Data3.  After connecting, simply navigate to, Labs/LS/Common/Faculty or Labs/LS/Common/TechPC.  Additional detailed instructions for accessing your personal network files with a Mac are available here.
