What we provide:
Members of Lancaster University have access to filestorage on a 'central filestore server' which is available to all networked computers. On 'Managed' Office PCs this is 'pre-connected' as the H:drive. Files stored in your H:drive folder are automatically backed up daily. In the event of a hardware failure, your data is secure if it is more than 24 hours old. For total security, important files less than 24 hours old should be copied to CD, DVD or floppy disk. Your H:drive can only be read by you.
Users of non-managed PCs or PCs/Macs connected via various other networks will have to connect 'manually'.
What we expect:
Please be aware that there is no 'Recycle Bin' on network drives, e.g. H:drive. This means that files you delete from network drives cannot be retrieved; they will not be retained or appear in the main Recycle Bin on the C:drive of your PC.
On PC Lab PCs and staff 'Managed XP PCs':
Connecting to Your H: drive from Off Campus
Before you can connect your H:drive you need your number. If you don't know your folder number, follow the link below:
