Within your Google account, you have access to a Google Drive with unlimited storage. The preferred method for storing and backing up your files is through your Google Drive. As a data storage solution, Google Drive uses cloud technology, which means that your data is stored on one of Google's servers so you can access it from anywhere in the world.
Your J Drive is your personal network storage space. This storage is intended for academic and work-related use only, so please don't store personal or inappropriate material there.
Every night your J Drive is backed up. If you need to recover a file that was accidentally deleted or mistakenly altered, please contact the Help Desk.
Faculty/staff have access to shared departmental storage (typically an I Drive, but the letter can vary). Save documents to your I Drive to share them with others in your department.
Accessing Your Network Drives
When you're on campus and you log into any university-owned computer—whether it's a lab computer, podium, kiosk or your assigned staff computer—you'll be able to access your J Drive and any departmental shares assigned to you.
When you're off campus or using a personally-owned device, you can access your J Drive and departmental drives if you are connected to the VPN.
If you're missing a drive letter, please contact the Help Desk.
