Using Your U: Drive

Having an AU network/email account allows you to access a personal network space. This space allows you to put your documents in a place that you can access from anywhere on the AU network as well as from home. This will also give you a place to back up important files.

Locating the U Drive:

On Campus:

Those connecting to an AU Windows computer on campus will automatically connect to the AU user space (U:Drive) on JOBS when logging on using your Alfred username and password. Use this space as you would any other drive. If you look in the Computer icon you will see a U:Drive with your user name on it.

Samba Udrive

If you don't automatically connect to your U:drive you can manually map a drive. You must have an active AU network account to access it.
