Student's Network Storage- How to Save Work to the Server

This year students have a different way to access their network storage. We removed network home directories because they were causing too much downtime and not performing well. Below, is a screen shot and a general description on how to access this network share on the Macs in our labs. We’ve had the student’s storage mounting for a while now, but have noticed very little data stored on the servers.

The School of Journalism is not responsible for recovering any files that you might have accidentally deleted, not saved, files lost due to system failure, file corruption, or daily computer maintenance.

If you have any questions please contact jtech for further information or assistance.

** Windows Machines currently do not have this automatically set up but we will send out an update when this issue is resolved. Until then, you can manually access your shared folder by using the addresses found at the end of this document.**

-----

Step 1: Log into a Mac with your NETID and on your desktop you should see two items on the desktop: SolidStateDrive, and a folder with your NETID below it. If you click on the folder with your NETID, inside the red box in the picture below, it should take you to your network share folder where you can store your data.




Step 2: You can save your documents in the network share folder. Keep in mind that Network Shares are not backed up but are a lot more accessible and reliable than saving to the local machine. Data saved to locally to a lab machine may be wiped during restores or common troubleshooting. Please use your Network Share and implement a backup solution to prevent data loss.



Sometimes students, and professors, get confused and they think if they save directly to the desktop that it will be saved automatically to the server...this is false, they MUST save their work to this folder, otherwise it will not be saved to the server.

As always, we recommend that all students save their work in multiple places, such as external drives or in the cloud (ex. Google Drive, OneDrive, and Box), just in case something happens.


If for some reason they do not see the share drive they can use the following addresses to get there via OS X and Windows.

Mac:

smb://jsrv.gs.umt.edu

Pc:

\\jsrv.gs.umt.edu
