Student Network Storage Server (H: drive) Upgrade Frequently Asked Questions

Information Technology is migrating student storage (H:Driver) to a new storage solution on January 9th, 2015.

I map a drive to my student storage location (H: drive); will the drive mapping location change?

Yes.  The drive mapping path location changed from \\windows.uwyo.edu\student\storage\username to \\studentfiles\storage$\

Note: the new storage solution will dynamically connect a student to his or her storage folder without the need to put their username in the path

If you are using a Mac, please see How to Connect to UWStudent and Classfiles Storage with a Mac for more information on how to connect.

Will the location for Classfiles change?

Yes.  The path location for Classfiles changed from \\windows.uwyo.edu\student\classfiles to \\studentfiles.uwyo.edu\classfiles$

If you are using a Mac, please see How to Connect to UWStudent and Classfiles Storage with a Mac for more information on how to connect.

After the upgrade, when I logged into a lab node some of my settings changed, is there a problem with my account?

No, this behavior is expected, so there is not a problem with your account.  As part of the upgrade, all users’ profiles were set back to a default state. Setting profiles back to a default state causes some user-specific settings to be lost.  Some standard settings that will be set to a default include desktop backgrounds and drive mappings.  No data is lost because of this change.

Will my H: drive storage increase?

Yes. Student Storage quotas increased from 1 GB to 2 GB.
