Drives & Mapped Drives
- To be able to access mapped drives the user must be part of the domain, access to mapped drives will be in accordance with the user’s permissions.
- Only drives mapped using the UI or CMD in user mode, will be visible to the agent. Drives mapped using CMD in administrator mode will not be visible.
- If a mapped drive is not on a domain connected computer, then the username and password used to access this resource, must be saved in the computer's password vault.
- For a migration/backup to work properly, mapped drives must use the same drive letters all the time.
- After any change in the mapped drives (add, remove) the user must use the “Reload Mapped Drives” option. A backup/scheduled migration plan must be updated accordingly.
