Select Drive Letter
1. Click the drop down window next to Drive:.

drive.

General formula for drive mapping.
n The path to your P: drive will typically end with your Tufts Username (e.g. jsmith01).
n The path to your Q: or R: drive will end with the name of your departmental share.
n There should be no spaces in the path name and drive paths are case sensitive.
The use of \\titan\xxxxxxxx will work when physically on the Tufts network, but you
must use the fully qualified domain name of \\titan.tccs.tufts.edu\xxxxxxxx when
connecting from a remote location. Therefore, the best practice is to always use
\\titan.tccs.tufts.edu (smb://titan.tccs.tufts.edu on a Mac) when mapping your Tufts network
drives.
P: drive syntax = \\titan.tccs.tufts.edu\your_tufts_username
Windows P: Examples:
\\titan.tccs.tufts.edu\jdoe01
\\titan.tccs.tufts.edu\jsmith
Q: or R: drive syntax = \\server\departmental-sever\your_department
Windows Q: Examples:
\\titan.tccs.tufts.edu\UIT$\Admin

\\titan.tccs.tufts.edu\as01$\your_department
\\titan.tccs.tufts.edu\flt01$\your_department

(617) 627-3376.
