DEdrivemap

Windows Machines


Beginning on Friday, January 3 2014, we will no longer be using the Big Red N to access network drives (H, M, P, etc)

If you got a new machine in the 13-14 school year, you will notice that these drives will now automatically show up on your computer without having to do anything else.

If you got your computer before the spring of 2013, you will need to download the program below and use it to log into the servers that host our network drives. This program REPLACES THE BIG RED N.


Download  DEdrivemap.exe and save it to your desktop to have easy access.

(To download right-click on the DEdrivemap.exe link immediately above, select Save Link As, then choose the "Desktop" folder on  your computer to save it to your Desktop.)


After downloading the program to your Desktop, you can double-click on it immediately or as soon as you startup or log in to your computer in the future.  After entering in your network login information, you will be able to see your drives as follows: 

          - H drive (your home drive)

          - L drive (Lower school files )

          - M drive (Vol2, F, G, and M combined)

          - P drive (Photos)


Please note this program only works when you are on campus.



Mac Machines


For Mac users, the process of connecting to these network shared drives is a little more manual.


Be sure you have logged into your computer while you are ON CAMPUS. If you travel back and forth to school and only put your computer to sleep, be sure to log completely out and back in.


  1. From the Go menu in the finder, select "Connect to Server."
  2. In the box that appears, type the name of the server address as follows: smb://nisos.ads.d-e.org
  3. Then click the Plus sign. This will add it to your list of favorite servers, so you don't have to type the address each time.
  4. Click the connect button, and you should see a list of shared volumes on this server. There is only one shared volume: fileserv. Click on this to mount the volume.
  5. Browse through the volume to find the directory that you need. Most M-Drive directories can be found in the directory called "Dwight."
  6. If you don't see a directory, you may need to be granted access to it. Contact Computer Services for help.
