How do I create a new folder as part of the Dfs?

A. Once Dfs is installed a new application, the Dfs Administrator, is created in the Administrative Tools folder. This app should be used to manage Dfs. To add a new area as part of the Dfs tree follow the procedures below:

  1. Start the Dfs Administrator application (Start - Programs - Administrative Tools - Dfs Administrator)
  2. Select "Add to Dfs" from the Dfs menu
  3. Enter the name of folder you want an existing share to be known as
  4. Next select what it should point to, you can either type the path, or use Browse.
  5. Click Add
