Map Toolbox to Shared Drive

PGPTech 4 months ago updated by Caitlin Barnes (Product Manager) 4 months ago 5

Hello,

was looking for a way to map an existing folder in a shared drive to the toolbox, instead of having to upload files from the shared drive to the toolbox.

I have a software folder that has a few Gigabytes of software and instead of uploading the software to toolbox, I think it would be easier to just point the toolbox to the software folder if possible.

thanks!

Hi PGPTech, 

On Windows machines, you'll see the option in the host client to "change folder" for your personal toolbox. You can remap your personal toolbox to the shared drive. Note that this is for your personal toolbox only, not the shared toolbox. 

Hope this helps!

Hey Caitlin,

This helps! I don't want to be picky but, it would be nice to just have it shown in the Toolbox window instead of just having it open up the software folder and then have to drag and drop the file. I'm just nitpicking, but what you recommended is very helpful. Thanks!  Toolbox.png

And now I look like a liar lol, seems like right after I replied the Toolbox updated itself and did exactly what I wanted. I can now see all the folders in my software folder in the toolbox section. 

Thanks again for the help Caitlin!
