Accessing from Wi-Fi Using a Mapped Drive

You can map a drive to view your UBfs space. The drive will be similar to using the S: drive in Computing Sites. If you  connect your computer to the UB network through your ResNet jack, you will not be able to acces UBfs when connected from ResNet with a mapped drive.

Mapping a Drive to UBfs

  1. Depending on your computer's operating system:
    • Windows 8: From the Start Screen, select the Desktop tile. Select the Computer icon on the Desktop. Select Map Network Drive from the Computer menu.
    • Windows 7: Click Start > Computer. Select Map Network Drive at the top of the window.
    • Windows Vista: Click Start > Computer. Select Map Network Drive from the Tools menu.
    • Windows XP: Click Start >  My Computer. Select Map Network Drive from the Tools menu.
  2. Use the drive letter pre-selected or choose an unmapped drive letter.
  3. Enter the UBfs folder for your Myfiles space:
    \\itorg.ad.buffalo.edu\ubfs\myfiles\1st_letter_ubitname\2nd_letter_ubitname\UBITName
    (where UBITName is your UBITName). For example, if your UBITName is jdoe, you would enter:
    \\itorg.ad.buffalo.edu\ubfs\myfiles\j\d\jdoe.
  4. When prompted for a username, enter ad\ followed by your UBITName, e.g., ad\jdoe.
