Managing Personal Storage

This storage is not manageable. Only the person whose home directory it is can see and access this directory and its contents.

This cannot be changed.



The safety and security of this storage is centrally managed by IT Services, ensuring that all your data is secure. All the security, patching and configuration is managed for you.


The storage platform is resilient to potential hardware failures, and also offers a self service style recovery method utilising Microsoft previous versions.


Personal Storage is easily accessible both on and off campus. You can access your files and folders from computers and mobile devices when and where you need to. Windows, macOS and Linux platforms are all supported.
