Shared Storage Space
Storage space on the network is provided for all students and employees. We encourage use of the network drives for storing your campus related data. It gives you the ability to move among computers on campus and still have access to your files. The following explains the various stores and how to access them.

Employee Personal Storage (mapped to h: on employee networks)
This storage is for for documents that are related to university business that only you need access to. Please do not use this space for backup of your entire computer or personal files. Documents stored on this drive are backed up daily for 30-days.
