The end user needs to "map a network drive" and select the server location in order to do this.
Click Start, and then click My Documents.
Click the Tools menu, and then click Map Network Drive.
In the Map Network Drive dialog box, click Browse.
In the Browse For Folder dialog box, click the folder you want to connect to, and then click OK.
In the Map Network Drive dialog box, make a note of the drive letter shown, and then click Finish.
If prompted, type your user name and password, and then click OK.
Microsoft Windows XP will open a folder to your shared files. In the future, you can open the shared folder from My Computer by clicking the appropriate drive letter.
First, click on the Computer shortcut from your desktop or from the Start Menu. In the toolbar you will find several buttons, including one called Map network drive.
Click on it and the Map Network Drive window will open. Firstly, you need to assign a drive letter for the connection and then type the drive or the folder you want to connect to.
The folder can be located on a remote server or computer you have access to, a FTP site or a shared folder on your own computer.
If you want to connect to a remote computer just type "\\" followed by the computer name or the IP address and then "\" followed by the location of the folder you want to connect to.
If you want to create a drive mapping to a folder on your own computer type "\\127.0.0.1\" (this stands for the local host) or "\\computer_name\" and then the path towards that folder.
Sometimes, when you create a drive mapping, you might need to use a special user name and password that allows you to connect to it. In this case, click on the Connect using a different user name link.
Type the appropriate user name and password and click on OK. Now you will return to the previous window. Click on Finish and the drive mapping will be created.
If you access the Computer shortcut again you will see that a new drive having the letter you assigned is listed and you can access it at anytime.
For Win 7:
1) Open Windows Explorer by double clicking on the Computer icon on the Desktop.
2) Click on Tools menu and select Map Network Drive… option as shown above
3) In the Map Network Drive window select the drive letter from the dropdown list adjacent to Drive as shown below
4) Now either type the name of the location of the folder to be mapped or click on Browse button and select the folder to be mapped as highlighted above
5) In the Browse for Folder dialog box navigate to the folder to be mapped and press OK
6) Click Finish button in the Map Network Drive window
You can now see the mapped network drive on the Computer window
Once the network drive is "mapped", the original folder is available as a save to location.
Hope that helps.
