Map a network drive in Windows XP

In this video the instructor shows how to map a network drive in Microsoft Windows XP. Network drive is similar to the disk drive that is present on your computer like C drive, D drive but instead of pointing to a hard disk on your computer it points to a server that has enabled shares. Shares allow you to create or edit files and folders. By mapping that server share to a folder in XP you can use that share as a normal drive. To do this go to start menu, right click on My Computer and select the option of Map Network Drive from the menu. Now there is an option to select the letter to the drive and also a text box to enter the location of the server share. Now this share will be shown in your Windows explorer as a drive and you can start using it as a normal drive. This video shows how to map a network drive in Microsoft Window XP.
