A computer’s local hard drive is a mechanical device that can fail. Network drives, on the other hand, have multiple drives and if one fails the data is shifted to a working drive. Network drives are backed-up nightly. For these reasons, it is important that you save your files on one of UNF’s network drives.
All Faculty and staff have access to the I: Drive, O: Drive, and the N: Drive. Depending on the services you require, you may have access to additional network drives.
The I: Drive is your Individual drive. Files saved here may only be viewed by you.
The O: Drive is your Office drive. Files saved here may be accessed by anyone in your department. This is a great place to save collaborative documents and direct co-workers to them, rather than email them back and forth.
The N: Drive is the Network-wide drive. Files on the "N" drive, by default, can be viewed by all faculty/staff, but not anyone else (i.e., students cannot access them).
You may store 350 MBs of files on your I: Drive
You may store 350 MBs of files on the O: Drive
You may store 350 MBs of files on the N: Drive
These storage limits are the "default or initial" storage quotas. This amount can be increased when necessary.
