- In the Finder Menu Bar, click on Go, then "Connect to Server..."
- In the Server Address field, type the path to the directory you want to map. This can be your Home folder like smb://ustor.appstate.edu/username or a Shared folder such as smb://ustor.appstate.edu/ITS/Support/HelpDesk.
- Click Connect and login with your AppState credentials.
- This will mount the uStor folder on the desktop.
- To create the shortcut to uStor on the Deskotp, right-click or control-click on the mounted uStor Share icon from the desktop and select "Make Alias".
- You will now have an alias of that uStor Share on your Desktop that won't go away when you eject it or disconnect from the network.
