Open up Computer:
After you have done that, select Map network drive:
Then, select a drive letter (*Note that C:\ D:\ W:\ and if you have any other removable drives plugged in, that those drive letters will be unavailable) to use. Where it says folder, you want to type \\smb\user, with user being your Unix account. Also, place a check in the Reconnect at logon. Click Finish and you will see the next screen:
By default, Windows will try and use your POP credentials. You have to enter your Unix account information in order to mount your Unix Home Directory. In the account name box, you want to type \user, with user being your Unix account. You will then enter your password and click OK.
You have now successfully mounted your Unix Home Directory on your Windows machine.
