File Storage

Description

ITS provides several solutions for electronic files and storage. Files containing regulated or sensitive data, including personal information, should be stored in accordance with the University's Category I Storage Standards. See this chart for more information.

All members of the campus community have OneDrive for Business, a personal document library intended for storing and organizing documents and other files. These files can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection, and shared with anyone within or outside of the University. OneDrive for Business provides everyone with 1 TB of space, and is available for as long as you have a UAlbany Mail account.

Everyone also has access to the S: drive, which includes 100 MB of personal file storage. The S: drive can be mapped on University computers or accessed from off-campus locations. The S: Drive is automatically mapped on computers in the Information Commons.

Departments maintain personal and shared folders for faculty and staff. In most cases, personal or Home folders are located on the U: Drive, while Departmental shared folders are stored on the V: Drive. All files in these locations are backed up frequently throughout the day and may be restored via an easy, self-serve procedure.

Computers in all Registrar-scheduled classrooms are equipped with shared drives where faculty and students can share their files.

ITS also provides group file sharing for faculty working on the ITSUnix Cluster. In some circumstances, additional U-wide folders can be made available for special projects that require access for people or groups across multiple divisions.
