I have a computer in one of our remote locations. It running Windows 7 Pro and I need to access one of the mapped drives remotely. The trouble I have is that it is doing something a little strange in that I cannot access via remote desktop and the only way in appears to be \\[ip address]\c$.

Trouble is I need the p: share.

Is there a way to map this (p:) remotely so I can access this via the ip address, like I can with the c: drive?

I can access the manage tool and can connect to the other computer, but I cannot see whether this would be useful.

If you can access the "Manage Computer" tool, and connect to the remote machine with it, you should be able to open the "Shared Folders" folder and create the share there.

  • Unfortunately mapped drives do not show here. I've tried on a fully functioning computer for comparison and I cannot see any network mapped drives there either.... – user5965399 Apr 5 '16 at 17:57
  • Well, no. Network-mapped drives cannot be shared. Simply connect to the share directly from your client machine. Sorry, I misunderstood your question originally. – Max Vernon Apr 5 '16 at 18:04
