Storage for departments is maintained on campus servers and is organized into various network drive, also called fileshares.

Individual Storage: UASHOME

Each individual has 50 MB of space to store data or host web pages.  (more details)

Temporary Storage: Scratch Disk

A network drive is available for anyone to temporarily store materials.  This drive is cleaned weekly and offers little protection for you files, as anyone can see, modify, and delete documents on the scratch disk.  This can be reached from any standard campus computer by mapping a network drive to: \\berling\scratch disk$

FAQ

1. How do I connect to departmental storage not on my computer?

You can connect to a department fileshare on any campus computer by Mapping a Network Drive (show me)

  1. Right-click on Computer in the Start Menu, and choose Map Network Drive
    Map Network Drive
  2. The drive letter will auto-select the next available letter.
  3. Fill in the Folder: field, by typing the server name (ex. \\berling) and the share name (ex. \scratch disk$) combined, you'll see: \\berling\scratch disk$.

  4. Check the box to Reconnect at logon, and Finish

Once the share has been mapped from your account on a particular computer, you will be able to get back to the fileshare through the Computer option.

2. Can we restrict access to individual folders on a campus share?

Absolutely. 

Simply contact the helpdesk with a request to specify permissions to the particular folder in question. We'll need to know which fileshare & folder (ex: \\berling\its$\Helpdesk\Professional Staff\) and what access (read/write/both) should be granted to that directory.
