Worried about losing important documents that are saved on your desktop? Consider making use of your personal network space.
Each employee (and student) has personal storage space in the network environment. We call it your I:\ Drive. The benefit of storing your important documents on the I:\ Drive is to ensure that they can be recovered if there is a fatal issue with the hard drive on your desktop. The files on the I:\ Drive are archived allowing you to restore up to the last three versions in a self-serve manner.
Mac users, this is available to you as well (with a few limitations). You will not be able to update documents in your I:\ Drive using an application. You will need to save to your local desktop and then copy to network space.
Space is limited, so don’t plan to store your entire MP3 collection or all your favorite videos as requests to increase space will be reviewed based on business needs.
Keep in mind that when you logon to a campus computer, you see your desktop (profile), but it is unique to that specific computer. Save a file on that desktop, or in Documents, and you will have to logon to that same computer to get it. Save the same file in your I:\ Drive, and you can access it from any campus computer.
