Where to store your filesPosted: March 15, 2017
So, you’re using our computers and wondering ‘where should I save my document?’ Well, that’s a great question.
Griffith University students get network storage space (H Drive), and online storage space (Google Drive) for storing files.
H Drive is available from common use computers via My Computer on the desktop. If you save your files here, you will be able to access them from any common use computer at any campus.
Though if you’re using one of our library laptops, you’ll need to use FileWay to access H Drive.
If you want to access files saved to H Drive off campus it does get a tad tricky. You’ll need to login to Griffith’s VPN first. You get a quota of 50MB storage space for H Drive.
Google Drive is connected to your student email account. It’s accessible from any computer browser and most mobile devices. All you need is a connection to the internet and you’re sweet to access it anywhere.
You also get unlimited storage space on your Google Drive – that’s right, unlimited. Take a squiz at our post on using Google Drive for further info.
It’s also important to remember:
- Saving your work to any other location on common use computers (e.g. the desktop or My Documents) will result in deletion when you log out or turn off the computer.
- Backup, backup, backup your files! Along with Google Drive and H Drive, you could save to a USB or email the file to yourself.
