How To: Correctly Save Your Work on the Easter Seals Network
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 (The G and H drive) are and what they are not.
What they are:
- Networked file storage that is backed up periodically (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 agency employees or limited to specific individuals.
- Files stored on your Home drive (commonly labeled as H: in My Computer) are accessible 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.
