Department Storage: Fileshares
Storage for departments is maintained on campus servers and is organized into various network drive, also called fileshares.
Individual Storage: UASHOME
Each individual has 100 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 files, as anyone can see, modify, and delete documents on the scratch disk. It can be reached from any standard campus computer by mapping a network drive to: \\berling\scratch disk$
You can connect to a department fileshare on any campus computer by Mapping a Network Drive (show me)
- Right-click on Computer in the Start Menu, and choose Map Network Drive
- The drive letter will auto-select the next available letter.
- Fill in the Folder: field, by typing the server name (ex. \\berling) and the share name (ex. \scratch disk$) combined, you'll see: \\berling\scratch disk$.
- 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.
This describes how to map a campus fileshare on your Apple OS X machine. Mapping your account allows you to access any files that you have stored on the network.
In the Finder, click on the Go menu, select Connect to Server.
To connect to your UASHome directory (aka: Z: drive):
In the Address field, type in smb://uashome/users$/username, then click Connect
Note: replace "username" with your campus username (ex: cjbennett)
To connect to your department shared drive:
In the Address field, type in smb://jun-campusfs01/shared_drive_name$, then click Connect
Note: replace "shared_drive_name" with your departmental share (its, admissions, etc)
To connect to your synched files on your computer:
In the Address field, type smb://sync-al/files$/computer name/username, then click Connect
Note: replace "computer name" and "username" with your specific information
Simply contact the helpdesk with a request to specify permissions to the particular folder in question. We'll need to know which fileshare & folder (ex: \\berling\its$\Helpdesk\Professional Staff\) and what access (read/write/both) should be granted to that directory.
