Using Departmental Storage

Getting Started

Most departments will already have a Departmental Storage shared area, and your departmental IT Officer will be person to ask about this. If you are the IT Officer and you would like to request an area for your department please contact the CiCS Helpdesk.

Off-Campus access

Off-campus access is achievable using either VPN from your own personal computer, or using the web interface.  Care should be taken when using public machines that passwords are not compromised, and university files are not left accessible to anyone else.

Recovering deleted files

Good working practice means files should only be deleted when they are no longer needed - backup systems are no substitute for this and indeed are not intended for this use.  However it is possible to recover files on the departmental storage system, usually for up to one week.  This can be done using a self-service system called 'Windows Previous versions'
