Mounting Samba from Windows

(Note that these steps require a working VPN connection if you are on wireless or outside of the departmental network.)

Depending on which version of Windows you are using, you may find 'My Computer' aka 'This PC' in different places. Windows explorer is always a guaranteed choice.

Right click the 'My Computer/This PC' icon and select 'Map Network Drive'

in the 'Folder' drop down menu type \\\[username]

When prompted give your username and password.

Known Problems

If your login fails, there may be a problem with your password. Try resyncing your password with our samba password file. The easiest way to do this is to reset your password via passwd. Wait 30 minutes and try again.
