Accessing Files

File space

You have a personal drive (called your M drive) on our central server, which is backup up nightly. You may use this for saving your academic work.

Note: if you are a student within the Faculty of Engineering and Informatics you may have other file space. Please ask your School for support.

It is possible to recover a deleted file or folder from your M drive.

You can also access your M drive remotely.

Back up your work

Ensure you always have a backup copy of your work in case anything should go wrong (for example your file becomes corrupt). Back up your data to a CD or another computer (for example at home). USB memory sticks are for transporting data and you are advised not to use them as a means of back up.
