NETWORK DRIVES

Faculty and Staff have access to different network shares, we call them the P, H, and R drives.

    • Faculty and staff have an H drive.  This is your Home drive, a personal and private share where you can save all your important documents. You can store up to 10GB.  The H drive is backed up every day so that the data is kept safe.  This data can be restored if necessary – but only for material saved in the three months immediately prior to it being lost.  These restore time restrictions apply to all of the drives.

    • Faculty and PhD students may also have an R drive, and it is limited for Research Data use.

    • The P drive is a Public share.  This drive can be used to store data temporarily for one week only.  This is a shared drive meant to be used for project collaboration and data sharing.  Everyone has access to this drive but it is cleaned weekly on Sundays.

 

 

NOTE: The I Drive is no longer offered.  This was the drive which faculty and PhDs used to host personal websites and data.  In lieu of this service, we recommend using Google Sites to create your personal websites.

A “How to” document for Google Sites is available on this Google Support page.
