Each employee with a Network User ID has access to one personal directory, which is called the F: drive on your PC. You can create folders under this directory to organize your files. When you log on to your PC, you will see your userid attached to the F: drive when you access My Computer or Windows Explorer, or attempt to open or save documents in any of your Windows-based software.

Yes. Whenever you use your Network User ID to log on to ANY College PC attached to the network, you will see your personal F: drive when you access My Computer or Windows Explorer.
All network drives are backed up on a nightly basis. However, you should not rely on ITS disaster recovery processes to secure your personal documents. It may be very difficult or impossible for ITS Operations to restore only a segment of the network for one individual. It is your responsibility to regularly back up your documents to an external source. Zip drives provide an ideal method for you to make backup copies of files.
Directories and files on the U: Sharable drive are set up with security access for only those individuals who have authorization to read or write to those directories and files. If you are established as part of a group who has read and/or write permissions to those files, you will be able to read and/or write to the files. If you should have the authorization and still get this error message, call the ServiceDesk to request that the security access be updated for the specific directory.
