File Storage in Active Directory

Saving files | Accessing files


Saving 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 below.


How do 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.
