Mapping NCSU AFS to your personal Laptop

Yeah I know expandrive is easier to use…. install, enter credentials, and you are done. But lets face it, expandrive isnt the fastest and most stable stable thing you’ve used. try to copy a lot of files and it leaves a few. The other problems … you know them

Give it a shot ! trust me when i say its sooo much “cleaner”. People facing trouble can give me a shout 🙂
