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.



If you are missing StoutFS drives or cannot access a drive with a red x displayed, please try the following:
Log off the computer (do not restart) and then log back in
or, if that does not work
  1. Make sure you are connected to the UW-Stout network, whether on campus or connected to VPN from off campus on your issued laptop
  2. Press and hold the Windows key then press the "R" key
           Windows Key + R
  3. Once the run dialog box is displayed, type in "gpupdate.exe /force" (without quotes) and click OK or hit Enter
  4. Accept any warnings that display and reboot if requested; if successful, the drives will appear
