File Server Space
The main university file server, sometimes referred to as a "network drive" or a "shared drive," is a location where groups can store files that they are working on collaboratively. Each department is allowed 30 GB of storage on the file server; each folder in a directory can typically hold 450 MB. Shared folders must not be used to back up whole computers or entire My Documents folders, but to store active documents. IRT offers another service for users needing partial or full computer backup.
If any department is interested in obtaining a shared folder on the file server, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to include the department name and user-ids of the people who need access to the folder. The Accounts Office staff will work with the requestor to create a hierarchy of subfolders and establish proper file and folder permissions.
