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.

Drive YDrive X
Drive TYPE Teaching Materials / System Administration Materials Shared Data
NOTES 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. This drive provides an easy way to share documents with other users. It can be used for temporary storage.

Access available both On-Campus and off-campus. However when accessing this drive from off-campus, the only folder you can connect to is the Teachers folder.

Access available only On-Campus. Access this drive via My Computer.
