I click on the 'Map network drive' button on my server's 'Computer'. There is a line asking for the 'folder' or essentially the network drive location. I have another server running on the IP I can map a network drive to the address '\\myfolder', but I get an error when I try mapping the drive to '\'. Is there a way where I can map my entire hard drive on the second server?

Use \\\C$. You need to be a member of the remote computer's local Administrators group for this to work.

You can also do it in command line:

net use x: \\\C$

To login as another user:

net use x: \\\C$ /user:username password

It will mount c: drive of as x:. Make sure Administrative Shares are enabled on host computer or your user has administrative rights on host computer.
