How do I Access My Folder on the Video Drive?

Log in to a computer.
Double-click the Video Drive icon on the desktop.
You might see a black box appear.  Ignore it.
Double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop (or right-click Start, then click Explore).
Open the "Video on Vbvod (V:)" drive.
Find and open your folder.

NOTE: Moving video files from this directory to your desktop will allow you to play the video without streaming it from the Internet.  Streaming from the Internet uses valuable bandwidth which in turn causes slow Internet and network performance for EVERYONE else in the building.
