Map a SmartVault Drive on Windows 7, 8, or 10


With a mapped drive, you can work with your cloud-based documents from Windows Explorer—a files and folders tool you probably use every day. Follow along with the video below or read the instructions to setup your SmartVault Drive.


  1. Open the SmartVault Launchpad.
  2. Click on SmartVault Drive.

  3. If you see a red X or a warning message regarding settings that might stop you from mapping a drive, click Correct to fix any issues.
  4. Select an available drive letter. Though we suggest using S or V to easily identify the drive with SmartVault, any letter is fine.

  5. Enter your SmartVault sign-in information and check the Reconnect box if both are not automatically completed for you.
  6. Click OK to create the mapped drive.


  • You must have have a user or a client license to use the SmartVault Drive feature. If you need to use the SmartVault Drive but are a Guest, please contact your account administrator. 
  • The SmartVault Drive for Windows requires that you have the SmartVault Desktop Software installed, or you may also manually map a drive on Windows 7 or 8 . See Manually Map a Drive on Windows 7 or 8.
