CU: H Drive Storage Guidelines
Everyone who logs into CedarNet is automatically connected to a personal storage area which we call the “H: Drive.” Your H: Drive is on a network server and is available through your login on any on-campus computer. (For off-campus access, see Accessing Your Network Drives). It is private and not accessible by any other user.

You may store files of all types on your H: drive, but its total storage space is limited. If your H: drive gets too close to being full, you could lose files or have existing files corrupted. It is important to keep track of how much H: drive space you have available at any given time.
For information on other storage options, view the CU: File Storage Recommendations help page.
- Go to [Start] > "My Computer."
- Under “My Computer” you will see a list of drives.
- Your H: drive is located under "Network Drives."
- The title begins with your ID number [for example: 1234567 on ‘Fir\Data\Homedirs’ (H:)].
Windows Explorer will normally show files and folders as pictures or “icons” which can take up a lot of space on your screen. To see a more compact representation, go to “View” > “List.” To see the age and size of a file, go to “View” > “Details.” This will show the size of the file and date the file was last changed.
If you are no longer an active student of the University, whether you have graduated or simply left,and you are enrolled during the spring semester, your H: Drive and CedarNet account will be active through January 31st of the following year. Graduate Students' account and H: Drive will not expire until one year after the date of their last enrollment. For more information, see the Expiring CedarNet Accounts page.
