If you access applications through Virtual Office CS or SaaS, you can navigate to your local network drives through application dialogs in which you can type a data location.

Note: You can open applications through Virtual Office CS or SaaS by clicking the Applications link in the navigation pane and then clicking an application icon. (If you don’t see these items, you don’t have access to applications through Virtual Office CS or SaaS.)

Browsing to the local C: drive

Virtual Office CS or SaaS will automatically map to the local C: drive of the workstation you are logged into. Note that C$ (\\Client) (V:) is your local C: drive in the Virtual Office CS or SaaS environment.

To navigate to your local drive, follow these steps.

  1. Click >Computer in any browse dialog.
  2. Click C$ (\\Client) (V:) to access folders and files on your local C: drive.
  3. To access files and folders that are saved to your local desktop, click Users, select your Windows profile, and click Desktop.

Browsing to a local network

Note: Not all applications allow you to browse to network drives.

To navigate to local network drives through dialogs in applications that are running in the Virtual Office CS or SaaS environment, enter the path as \\client\<mapped network drive>$\.

Example: To access a local network drive M, enter \\client\M$\.
