Data Storage: Shared Data Storage

In much the same way that Drive Z gives each user personal online storage, Drives X, Y, M, and Q provide virtual space to store documents in an open, shared environment. The table below will help you differentiate between the four online drives available through the University System.

NOTES This drive gives you 5 GB of various personal types of documents. The server supporting Drive Y is housed at the Nishinomiya Uegahara Campus, and it is recommended that those at the Nishinomiya Uegahara Campus use Drive Y instead of Drive M or Q. The server supporting Drive M is housed at the Kobe Sanda Campus, and it is recommended that those at the Kobe Sanda Campus use Drive M instead of Drive Y or Q. The server supporting Drive Q is housed at the Nishinomiya Seiwa Campus, and it is recommended that those at the Nishinomiya Seiwa Campus use Drive Q instead of Drive Y or M. This drive provides an easy way to share documents with other users. It can be used for temporary storage.
NOTES OF CAUTION The System Administrator reserves the right to delete documents for purposes such as freeing up space. A major disk-clearing session occurs especially at the end of both the spring and fall semesters.
Any data stored here can be viewed, altered, and erased by anyone else with sufficient access privileges.
It is recommended that all documents uploaded to Drives Y, M, Q, and X are backed up on the user's personal media.
For example, if Mr. A put a document in Drive Y, Mr. B can delete it. So be careful!
