Windows Server File Storage
The UDrive is a central file service provided via Windows servers for Penn State users. You can store up to 500MB on your UDrive. Files will be stored for as long as your Access Account is active. If the computer you use is Windows, setting folder and file permissions is a little easier than doing the same with PASS space, since native Windows permissions are used. Also, because of the much smaller size, a self-service restore from backup system is available where you may be able to retrieve old files or files erased from the UDrive.
All Windows 7 CLM-based systems also use the UDrive for storing your Desktop items.
The files in your UDrive cannot be accessed by other users unless you share them. However, the names of the files and folders in just your home folder, not any subfolders within your UDrive, are visible to everyone. This makes sharing specific folders much easier.
If you don't want anyone to see the names of some files, then put them in a subfolder.
Help and Support
If you need technical support for an issue with the UDrive service contact the ITS Helpdesk either helpdesk [at] psu [dot] edu (by email) or by phone at 814-865-HELP.
