Enterprise File Services (EFS) is a system designed for secure computer file storage and online file sharing for faculty and staff. Enterprise File Services has three separate and distinct parts: individual home directories (P: drive), departmental file storage (Q: drive) and research drives (R: drive). You can map to these drives on your workstation, and then documents can be saved, copied, or moved to the mapped EFS drive just like any other drive. Files are backed up nightly and secured by the University's firewalls.
University computers supported by ITS can access the P, Q and R drives while off campus.
All faculty, staff, and students receive a P: drive to store university files that are intended from individual use. When you are no longer affiliated with the University, these files are deleted. These drives allow for 75 Gigabytes(GB) maximum of university related files and is private for your individual use only. Drives can be increased to store up to 200 GB on request.
Faculty, staff, and student employees may be granted access to a shared directory to store files accessible to the group. The files on the Q: drive persist, even if one person with access leaves the University.
Researchers may request or have been granted access to a shared directory to store files accessible expressly for research. The files on the R: drive persist, even if one person with access leaves the University.
