By implementing the UGent Global Namespace you can use all your shares and network folders from one single location.
Replace the loginname with your own username.
You can mount the network path to a drive letter of choice.
After mounting \\files.ugent.be\loginnaam you see the Global Namespace Root (G:-drive) from where you will be able to see and use both all your personal files and the files on a shared network location, without any further mapping.
You will only see the directories to which you have access. The root (G:) itself is read-only.
