Every Jacobs member has a networked home drive starting NOW!
A network home drive is file space on a file server in the network, accessible by the user only, for private, secure, safe, and networked storage of important documents, spreadsheets, images, etc.
If you login to a JACOBS Windows computer with your JACOBS domain account, the networked home drive is automatically available as drive H: On other computers, it is available as a network directory.
Use it store valuable data instead of on local disks, and instead of the User_Data folder on the admin file server.
Home drive for every Jacobs University member
Every domain member at Jacobs University now has a network home directory, where he or she can store data.
"domain member" includes students of Jacobs University!
The network home drive is part of Jacobs University's backup system.
If you use a Windows computer in the JACOBS domain, and login with your JACOBS domain account (i.e., with CampusNet username and password), your network home drive is immediately available as drive H: (as in "home drive").
If you use a Windows computer not in the JACOBS domain, or login with a local account, the drive is available as network directory \\storage.jacobs.jacobs-university.de\homeshare\c\cnusername (where "c" is the first char of your CampusNet login, and cnusername is your CampusNet login). For Unix/Linux/MacOSX, the notation would be smb://storage.jacobs.jacobs-university.de/homeshare/c/cnusername.
There is a quota (maximum available space per user) of 1 GB on the network home drive.
Please see the FAQ network home drive at Jacobs.
