Either access these drives by logging on to the network in a student lab on campus, or if you want to use your own computer, access the drives via NetStorage.
- Staff members and third parties:
If you don’t want a permanent connection to the network drives, use NetStorage.
If you will be accessing network drives often, follow the instructions below to install the Novell client.
UCT hosts several network drives – such as an individual F: drive (personal storage space for each student) and the G: drive (which contains storage space for each department).
For shared areas – such as the folders on your department’s G: drive – you’ll need access to the department’s common drive.
