About the Network drives

When you log onto uanet with the computer in your office, or using a University owned laptop connected to the domain, it will map your departmental network drives. The "H" drive will show up along with the other drives available on your computer within your "My Computer icon." The "H" drive available to you will be specific for your department and may contain a folder just for your documents. If you have your own folder on the "H" drive, you are the only person able to use the folder. The "H" drive is an excellent place to backup important documents.
