RFS is mounted like a normal Windows network drive. The new URL of the network drive is:

\\blue.cam.ac.uk\RFS

which will allow you to browse through your available RFS projects and choose which project you want to use. Alternatively, if you know the name of the project use the direct path to the project:

\\blue.cam.ac.uk\RFS\project

where project is your RFS project name

Note

Using the \\blue.cam.ac.uk\RFS URL will only show a list of the projects the user has access to. Then it’s up to the user to select the project they want to work on from the list.

In order to use the new share location for your RFS share Right click This PC in an Explorer Window and then click Map network drive
