Network Storage Drives

The H: Drive and G: Drive and Academic Storage may be accessed from on campus or off campus.

Campus Domain (G: Drive, H: Drive, P: Drive) - Faculty & Staff

The Campus Domain allows faculty and staff to log in to a collection of IT servers for access to shared network resources such as an H: Drive for work-related personal space, group space (G: Drive) for campus departments, and public file sharing space (P: Drive).
 

  • Group Space (G: Drive) - Departmental Space for Faculty and Staff - For access to the G: Drive for new faculty and staff, an authorized departmental representative must contact the TSC at 757-221-4357 (HELP) or support@wm.edu to submit a request.

  • Personal Network Space (H: Drive) - Faculty and Staff (5GB) - The H: Drive is personal network space for College-related materials made available to faculty and staff. In public labs and offices this is automatically mapped as the H: Drive, but it can also be accessed on your personal machine by mapping to the drive while on campus. Users seeking additional file storage space could utilize an additional storage option like Box or OneDrive.

  • Public Directory (P: Drive) - RETIRING SOON! The P: Drive is also known as the Public Directory.  It is a temporary location for sharing information and data.  The files stored in the P: Drive can be viewed and deleted by others.  The P: Drive should NOT be used to store copyrighted materials, personal music, photographs, or sensitive/confidential information.

    IMPORTANT NOTE! The P: Drive is retiring soon and will be moved to read-only status during the 2018/2019 Winter Holiday break.  It will be retired before the Fall 2019 semester. 

Academic Storage (ACStore)

IT provides additional network storage space to W&M faculty and research groups needing larger amounts of storage for academically-related digital materials through the ACStore.

Off-Campus Access to Network Drives

Off-campus access is available using a secure FTP client with the host name sftp.wm.edu. You'll need to provide your WMuserid and password.  You can also access network drives using William & Mary's VPN or a Virtual Desktop (VDI).


Note about space availability: Looks can be deceiving! 

With the G: Drive, instead of seeing the usage for your department, you see the usage for ALL departments.  Don't worry, we'll contact you when you get close to the quota!
