    We switched networks in our office. I cant seem to be able to access the p drive now. It says disconnected network drive. How do I get that back?

    How did you define the "p" drive?

    What do you mean by 'switched networks'? More than likely the computer/server that is the "P Drive" may not have the correct IP address.

    Is there a way I can go in and change that so the drive can be accessed from the new network?
    I dont know much about it. The guy that switched our stuff yesterday had a heart attack and I have no idea what to do

    Sounds like who ever set up the new network, did NOT redo all of the "Mapping" of the shared drives?
    You need to contact your IT people.

    I am sorry to hear about the technician, but without any information of the network, past and present setup, we cannot assist. If the technician is from a company (and not independent) then the company needs to send someone else to assist.
