What are network drives or server volumes?
All students, faculty, and staff at Saint Mary's College are provided with 1GB of disk space on our network to save their files.
This space is accessible from any networked computer on campus, and is commonly referred to as a personal network drive or the H: drive. A student can save a paper she is working on in her room to her network drive; go to a computer cluster; access the paper saved on her network drive; and print it on the laser printers. Network drives eliminate the need to carry files around on disks or flash drives. Also, a backup of all network drives is created every night, which makes it a secure place for your important papers and other files. Saint Mary's College strongly recommends that you save a copy of your work to your network drive.
You may also need to connect to additional network drives or server volumes to access shared department network space. Instructions for mounting these additional drives can be found on the ResNet FAQ and the Helpdesk FAQ.
