Home folders are available for all Faculty/Staff to store documents and other work-related data.
This storage is centrally located in the Information Technology data center and will be made available to you over the network as your "H:" drive.
Accessing the "H:" drive
Your home folder will show up when you logon to your office computer with your Domain/Outlook account and will be listed as your "H:" drive under "My Computer."

Advantages of using the "H:" drive:
Since the home folder is located on a server in the data center we are
able to backup the data on a regular basis. Also, since your home folder
is tied to your domain account it will be available on any computer
when you logon with your domain account not just your office
How should I use the "H:" drive?
We recommend that you store work-related documents and reports to the home folder.
Since the initial space is limited to 10GB we do not recommend storing large video files.
The "H:" drive will be available as your
other local disk drives and will appear when you open "My Computer" or
save a document in an application such as Microsoft Word.
