GSC - Add or update Network Drive


With the migration to the Enterprise Services domain, laptops will no longer automatically map network drives.  This document will go over how end users can manually re-map their network drives.

NOTE: Non-GSC stored drives (such as UCR) will not need to be migrated.  This is for GSC shared drives such as the Cross-Group.  If you have any questions, please reach out to IT.
