OPTIONAL: decide whether to enable or disable the “Reconnect at logon” option
Enter your Academic RIO Device credentials
A new Windows Explorer window opens showing the Academic RIO Device file system
Right-click on the mapped drive and choose “Disconnect”, if desired
NOTE: The “http” network connection is not encrypted; use “https” instead to establish a secure connection to the Academic RIO Device file system. However, as of this writing I have been unable to make this technique work on my own system.
To fix potential slow performance of the mapped drive:
Select the “Windows Start” button and begin typing “Internet Options”; it should appear as a “Control Panel” item
Select the “Connections” tab
Click “LAN settings”
Uncheck the “Automatically detect settings” option
Expect to see an immediate improvement in file access speed, although you may sometimes experience “quirky” behavior, e.g., right-clicking to create a new text document throws an error, but creates the file anyways.
