Space for groups

Space for groups

Unlike private space, space for using the storage server as a group needs to be requested at the helpdesk; please state your logon name and group.

For each of the groups listed below a space of 1 TB has been allocated. The intention is that this is enough space for everyone in the group to share for backups. We will evaluate this limit but kindly ask every group to make sure that the space used is indeed useful.

Using group space the storage server

In order to use your groups allocated space on the storage server, you can map a network drive of the following form:

Where group is the abbreviation of your group as listed above.

Private space on the storage server before 2011

In case you need to store sensitive data, it is also possible to apply for a private space on the storage server. The amount of space is still shared with the rest of your group, but nobody other than yourself will have access to the data you store there. If you want to use this, please apply for it at the helpdesk; please state your username and group, and state that you want to store data in a private subdirectory.

In order to use your privately allocated space on the storage server, you can map a network drive of the following form:

\\winstorage\group\users\username

Where group is the abbreviation of your group as listed above, and username is your username.
