When you log on to a computer at University West and open the browser, you'll notice that you have several different drives (e. g. H:). Here is a brief description what they mean and what they contain.
The Home directory, H:\, is a safe place where you can save your files. Whenever you log on to the university's system you are automatically connected to your own saved files. The home directory is located under "Computer" and has a name that corresponds with your username.
Your home directory works just like a folder. You can create files and folders, and delete and rename them. The size of your home directory is limited to 10GB. The home directory is located on the university's server and is beeing backed up on a regular basis.
is used by various software installed on university computers including settings files. You can not save anything here.
Here teachers can upload files and folders that may be needed before and during a laboratory experiment. Students can open or copy files that are here, but can not save anything.
is an area where all students can save and delete files temporarily, so here you should not save files you want to keep. Important to know is that the Service & IT department can NOT restore files that disappeared from T: \. The Service & IT department cleans this area periodically and deletes all files.
The files in the Home directory can also be accessed from any internet connected computer via files.hv.se. You log in with your University West username and password.
