Mapping A Drive

Dear Friends, Hi,

May be our question can be very simple or easy for you.
But we are new in using FILR. We do not have a NFS or CIFS. We wish to share some folders and files which are stored in an external Harddisk. (We will upload all those folders and files into FILR and then share it as Net Folder.)
But we do not know how to map a drive, and how to upload those big data into FILR through Mapped Drive/ Net Folder.

In other words, if you refer below message from FILR NET FOLDER SCREEN, it says "A mapped drive" or "A remote server" We do not have a remote server. So we would like to know how to map a drive and how to import/see it in FILR..

Thank you so much for your helps and interest in advance.

Regards,
Lutfi

Net Folders are folders and files on your corporate file system. Filr gives you seamless access to these files, regardless of their location. Your corporate file system includes:
• A mapped drive
• A remote server
The corporate files that you have access to are defined by your Filr administrator.

Re: Mapping A Drive

Hi, Lutfi,

as I understand your problem, you want to share the content of an
external usb-drive.
In this case I would recommend a workaround as follows
1. install the desktop app onto your machine
2. create the users on your filr system
3. assign your filr-account the right for sharing
4. copy content of usb drive to extra folder in filr\my files on your
machine, after copying the drive will no longer needed
5. right click on this folder and share it to the users or groups you
created in step 2

the guys here can add additional comments, if I forgot something
Good luck

Gotthard - good solution!
Lutfi - Filr is intended to provide more flexible access to a server.
A Net Folder Server could be OES, Windows Server, a NAS, etc. The Net
Folder uses the Net Folder Server. An external usb drive by itself
doesn't quite fit this scenario. You could connect the usb drive to a
server and go that route, but you would probably get better results to
just copy the contents to the server. Faster access.

Thank you so much. I totally understood.
