Home (H://) Drive Decommission
On Wednesday, March 31, Home (H://) drives will be set to no longer allow new file storage and will then be decommissioned. Before March 31, Home (H://) drive users should copy any files currently in their H:// drives that they wish to maintain access to over to one of the cloud services available to faculty and staff for file storage and collaboration.

Recommended New File Service: OneDrive | Transfer on Windows | Transfer on Mac

Dropbox is also available to store large collections of files, secure research-related data or collaborate with other Dropbox users. Request an account in the new university instance of Dropbox to migrate your data to.

Department (I://) drives will be transitioned in a future phase.

All Georgia State University faculty and staff have access to a personal, 3 GB Home Drive, and a shared Department Drive, with total space allocation of 3GB per department member. Users on a Windows workstation can access their drives simply by logging in to their computer and navigating to their drives under My Computer. Mac users need to manually enter a network address in order to connect to these drives, from both on and off campus. Instructions for connecting to drives are included below.
