The Home Directory (H: Drive)
Each Student at the University is given access to a secure, user specific network drive called the
Home Directory (H: Drive).
Data stored on the H: drive is stored on a network server and is pulled down when you log onto the computer. This allows you the flexibility to retrieve your information on any of the computers on the SCSU network, once you have logged on the computer as yourself.
Accessing the H: Drive is no different from accessing a floppy disk or a jump/flash drive. Your H: drive can be found under the network drives on My Computer, or you can pull it up from various applications
using the open or save commands.
**Please note, to access your H drive, you must be connected to SCSU network. Therefore you cannot connect to your H: Drive off campus.
