One of the most common questions answered by the IT Department is: What are the G (or 'shared' drive) and H drive and how do I effectively utilize them?

What Do I Store on the Network and Why Do I Store Files on the Network

Let's first talk about what they are and what they are not.

What they are:

  • Networked file storage that is backed up perodically (your work is safe from viruses, hardware failures, floods and fire).
  • Files stored on the Shared drive (commonly labeled as G: in My Computer) are able to be shared between all of agency or limited to specific employees.
  • Files stored on your Home drive (commonly labeled as H: in My Computer) are accessable only by yourself and are not able to be accessed by other employees.

What they are not:

  • Storage for personal items such as photos, music or personal documents.
