Storage space on the network is provided for all students and employees. We encourage use of the network drives for storing 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.
Mapped to [h:] in labs and to [w:] on employee networks
Each student and employee is allowed 400 MB of space for personal use. Anything placed in the /personal_website folder is available at http://personal.southern.edu/~username/.
