All WFIR studio and newsroom machines have this network location mapped to the drive letter N. This means you can use the drive on those machines just as if it were a local hard drive. For example you can browse files on the News drive through “My Computer” or through file open/save dialog boxes without having to know the network location, just select the drive letter N from the location drop down box.
If you are on a machine that doesn’t have the News Drive drive mapped then you probably shouldn’t be accessing it. The News Drive is for WFIR file storage only. This drive provides audio to on-air resources like WireReady and should not be accessed by anyone outside the news department.
