Network Storage System: On-Campus access instruction for Staff/Faculty

Each faculty/staff member is assigned space on the SAN when their network account is created. This space is commonly referred to as the H:/ drive.

  • PC users can follow the instructions listed below.

    To access your storage space on the SAN from a computer on-campus, you must first use your FSU username and password (your network account) to log in to the University's network.

    Then click on the My Computer icon on your computer desktop. You will see the H:\ drive listed as one of the available Network drives. Doubleclick on the H:\ to view your network storage area.

    You can copy and save files to the H:/ from any program just as you would save them to your desktop or to your C:\ drive. Note: For most staff, any files and data that you save to your My Documents folder are stored on the H:\ drive as this is where the My Documents folder sits. To make sure the files in your My Documents folder are being stored on the H:\ drive, right click on the My Documents icon on your Desktop, choose Properties. In the Target field you should see H:\My Documents. If your location is different, contact the Help Desk.
  • Access instructions for Macintosh users are accessible from the Network Storage Area Access web page.

Contact the Help Desk if you need assistance accessing or using your storage space on the SAN.
