How do I find the correct temporary replica share location

During maintenance work on biochstore4/6, the following read-only shares will be made available. The idea is that you should copy any files that you wish to edit to a local drive on your computer (e.g. the desktop). Once normal service is resumed, you can copy the modified files back into place. This is designed to avoid the need to work out in advance which files might be needed, or to take copies of entire file shares.

Domain-linked PCs will be able to find links to all the shares listed below at
