StoutFS drive mappings (typically M:, O:, & S:)
This document explains the drive mapping process for StoutFS.
StoutFS Drive mappings (typically to M: S: and O:) are automatically run when a Windows computer is logged into by someone with StoutFS access. Some StoutFS drives will display with a red x, but this does not necessarily mean they are inaccessible. Please attempt to open them before proceeding. StoutFS drives are only available while connect to the UW-Stout network, whether on campus or connected to VPN from off campus on your issued laptop.

- Make sure you are connected to the UW-Stout network, whether on campus or connected to VPN from off campus on your issued laptop
- Press and hold the Windows key then press the "R" key
- Once the run dialog box is displayed, type in "gpupdate.exe /force" (without quotes) and click OK or hit Enter
- Accept any warnings that display and reboot if requested; if successful, the drives will appear
