Files on ICLAB Computers
"My Documents" (as seen below) is the only private
area to store your personal documents in active directory.
Store all your personal smaller sized files (less than 50MB)
in My Documents. Video's and other larger files are stored
on "Jasmine" on the "media" drive in
the appropriate folder.
Don't store files on your desktop.
Your active directory desktop remains the same no matter
which computer you sign into. If you have too many files
on your desktop, errors start occuring in the file system
and you won't be able to log in.
If you want to store information publically, follow the instructions
I get access to the files I saved?
Besides being able to navigate to your files using the
guidelines for “My documents” above, you can manually
locate these files as well. The instructions in the picture
above help you create a short cut to these files. Follow
the instructions below.
You should be able to access all your saved files through
your \\wired\users\cogsci-"your name"
When you access your cosci-you name account you should have
a "My Documents" folder inside along with any
other ones you create. The example file above (cogsci-bryan)
has two subfolders: 1) “My Documents” and 2) "bryan."
So Bryan can access any files from the account while everyone
else can only access the "bryan" folder.
