Locating your files

Depending on what you have access to, files can be found at the following locations. Please note that any words in {curly brackets} are placeholders and must be replaced with the appropriate information. If you do not know what to replace it with, simply leave it off entirely. You will see all of the folders within the share that you have access to.

Legacy Faculty and Staff Personal Folders

Phasing out faculty and staff personal folders

Because of the availability of CrashPlan for data backups and OneDrive for multi-device file syncing, new folders for faculty and staff are no longer being created. Existing folders will be hosted until the hardware is decommissioned.
