Map a drive letter to SharePoint in a way that can survive a reboot.

If you’ve tried to map a network drive to sharepoint, and found it didn’t survive a reboot, here’s a Trick a fellow sharepoint person shared with me:


In other words, if your site is,
to get to that in windows, without opening a browser first, you’d go to \\\davwwwroot\RootSite\subsite\library

Update 6-2014 — renamed article to make it easier to find.

Also, please note, there is the “net use” command which can map a drive from the command prompt.

For example:

net use z: \\\davwwwroot\subsite\library /user:domain\user yourpassword  /Persistent:yes

(You can leave off the password part and type it in at runtime)
