  2. Click the "Options" button, and then click the "Local Resources" tab.
  3. Click on "More", expand the "Drives" option tree and select the disk drives you want to have access through your VPS.
  4. Once you selected the drives, click on "OK" and click on the "Connect" button to establish a connection. 1
  5. Once connected, click on "Computer" (Windows Server 2008) or "My Computer" (Windows Server 2003)
  6. Your disk drives should now appear on your VPS Drive list, under "Other" disks.

1If it is the first time you connect to your VPS sharing a disk drive(s), you should now see a warning prompting to review the hostname in order to make sure you trust the computer/hostname. If this is the case, you should now tick the checkbox with the caption "Don’t ask me again for remote connections to this computer" and finally click on the "Connect" button.
