Home and Shared Drives
The college provides home and shared drives that are high availability spinning disks for safe storing of all research, administrative and teaching data. These drives are backed up nightly to an offsite repository.
Faculty and staff have access to a home drive. All home drives are connected directly to a PC with a drive letter of H:. This drive is only accessible by the individual owner. Home drives are currently located on these servers:
- Astro\home and \home2
- Felix\home and \home2
U of I Box
Faculty can also use UofI.Box.com for research data. There is no quota with Box.com. There are some limitations on what kind of data can be stored there. Find out more here: U of I Box
