As a St. Thomas student, faculty or staff member, you can create and store personal documents on our network. This is an excellent resource for storing papers, resumes, and other files you don’t want to lose — and you can access these files from either on or off campus. This central storage space called "MyStorage", is backed up nightly, so it is much more reliable than floppy, zip disks or USB keys.
Your MyStorage directory has 750MB of storage space, and is available from any workstation or lab computer on campus, and can also be remotely accessed from off campus (see below). Access to your MyStorage folder is controlled by your UST NetID and password, so it’s private.
MyStorage is a great place to save documents; and remember it is backed up nightly so you don’t have to worry about losing any of your important files.
On lab PCs, this storage directory is automatically mapped to your U:\ drive; a shortcut called MyStorage is placed on both PC and Mac desktops. You can save documents to this directory using an application’s “Save” function, or by dragging-and-dropping files into the icons.
If you wish to map your MyStorage to your personal computer, please review the step by step directions provided below. Also, if you need to restore a file you can do so by following the directions provided below.
