Network drives

What's H: drive? And Staff2Students? Find out about your storage space on the University network.

Network drives are the best place to store files referenced and updated by yourself.

H: drive (Home)

Everyone has access to H: drive.

The H: drive is your personal storage space on the University's network.

It is secure and backed up to keep your work safe, so we recommend you use it to store any documents that are confidential to you and the work that you do.

If you have a University laptop then your H: drive will also synchronise whenever you have a network connection at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Your H: drive is available automatically when you're logged into any University computer under My Documents, so all you have to do to save your work there is click Save.

Students have 4Gb of storage space on H: drive. Staff have 10Gb of storage space on H: drive.
