Mapping a Network Drive
When instaling The THERAPIST to access data across a network, sometimes it is easier to do if you first map a network drive. What "mapping a netword drive" means is to tell Windows to assign a drive letter to a folder on a remote computer. Once that is done, you can access files in the target folder using the mapped drive letter instead of the verbose network path. For example, the full network path name to a folder on the computer named "FrontOffice" on the drive labeled "My Drive C" in the path c:\Program Files\The THERAPIST\Data" would be:
If you map this folder to drive letter "T" you can reference this data folder simply as T:\ and the files within it as T:\SomeFile instead of \\FrontOffice\My Drive C\Program Files\The THERAPIST\Data\SomeFile. This is obviously easier to type and to remember. Also, some software cannot use the longer form, although The THERAPIST can use either format.
Windows makes it easy to map a network drive. Just follow these steps:
You should now be able to see your new drive letter within My Computer.
