Mapping Drives to Cloud Storage Services

Applies to: Any Windows PC.
Prerequisites: None.


Any regular drive on your desktop that has a drive letter should show up in Swizznet.

This procedure will show you how to map OneDrive to a drive letter. It also works with other cloud storage services, such as DropBox.


Open File Explorer on your local desktop.

Right-click on OneDrive then select Copy. Right-click on your Desktop then select Paste shortcut.



Right click on the shortcut then select Properties.

Copy the Target path shown under the shortcut tab.


In File Explorer click on This PC, then click on Computer at the top and click the Map network drive button.


Pick the drive letter you want to use. (Do not use C: or H:).
Paste the path copied from the shortcut Target field into the Folder field here then change the path, replacing the C: portion of the path with, \\localhost\C$. E.g.,

"C:\Users\username\OneDrive - Hosting Enterprises, Inc., dba Swizznet" is changed to "\\localhost\C$\Users\username\OneDrive - Hosting Enterprises, Inc., dba Swizznet"


Click Finish.

Log on to Swizznet and the newly mapped drive to your OneDrive resources will show.
