DescriptionFor Mapdrive

Mapdrive is a software utility whose main purpose is to, as the name clearly suggests it, help you in mapping network drives, with a minimal amount of effort. Portability preferences The setup process can be bypassed altogether, as this product is portable. As a consequence, the Windows registry is not going to receive any kind of changes without your approval. In addition to that, you can copy the program files to a USB thumb drive in order to run it with just a click of the button, on any computer you gain access to. Not so appealing environment The interface you come across might seem a bit overwhelming at first, as it comprises many buttons, some drop-down menus and a few boxes in a pretty small window. It is not particularly easy on the eyes either, yet it encompasses some well-organized Help contents. This will make it possible for both power and novice users to work with it. Options you can take advantage of and tweakIn order to create your network drive, you are required to input a SharePoint server name and the username you want to use, as well as select the drive letter preferred from a drop-down menu. Currently used system drives are displayed in a dedicated pane in the main window, while you can also input a password and hide it with just a click of the button. An on-screen keyboard can be brought up, and you can connect to the newly created drive or disconnect from it with just a click of the button. All your parameters and user settings can be saved to a file on the hard drive, and you can reboot your system with ease, as well as a remote one, as long as you input the appropriate computer name. A final assessment The computer’s performance is not going to be burdened in any way as the amount of resources used is low at all times. The response time is good and the interface is pretty easy to handle, although not very appealing. All things considered, it is safe to say that Mapdrive is a pretty decent piece of software when it comes to mapping a network drive, yet it does not bring many options to the table and could use a little more improvement when it comes to appearance.
