More Information

  • In some cases, AllPro will map these for your automatically.
  • Depending on your organization’s security preferences you may be prompted to enter your Windows username and password.
  • Mapped locations that are no longer available can cause performance problems in Windows (slow startup, lags in Word, Outlook, and printing…) and should be removed.  To disconnect an obsolete mapping right-click on the drive and choose Disconnect.
