    Hey mate,

    I am not sure of which OS your using, but assuming that it is W7

    1). Open Computer
    2). Click Map Network Drive (towards the top)
    3). Assign an appropriate Drive letter
    4). Enter \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\Share Name (e.g.: \\192.168.0.2\My Backup Drive, assuming that you have Shared a drive with the name "My Backup Drive")

    I hope that this helps.

    Kind Regards,

    Davo
