IT servicesH: & i: network drives

Every student and staff member at Strathclyde can save files on the University network. 

You can access your h: and i: drives once you log on to any networked University computer. On Windows machines, you'll find your h: and i: drives under 'My computer' (or 'Computer').

You can access your h: and i: drives when you're off campus, and from Linux/Unix machines, Macs, mobile devices, and from Windows machines which aren't on the University network. Visit our in depth help network drives pages to get started.

We back up all data saved on the network. There's no need for you to make your own additional backups of files stored on network drives. You can usually restore deleted files yourself.

i: drive

You will find shared folders for teams and groups in the i: drive

All users can connect to the i: drive. What you see in the i: drive depends on which folders have been shared with you. This is usually managed by departmental/Faculty IT staff.

If you would like to join an existing group of i: drive users, or would like to have a new group created, contact your local IT support. If you do not know who this is, contact us.

h: drive

Every user has an h: drive, a 'home directory' on the network for your personal University files and folders.
