Departmental drive

Departments are provided with 1TB of space on a departmental drive. This drive can be used for by the department for its own purposes and may include folders which can be shared with colleagues.

Applying for Departmental space

Departmental space must be requested and at least TWO members of staff should be nominated as the authorised administrators of the file space. A short name for the file store (e.g. the department name/initials) should also be provided. To request departmental file space, contact the IT Service Desk.

Managing your Departmental File Store

Once the departmental file space has been set up the nominated administrators will have full control of the file space and can grant rights to users as decided by the Head of Department. We will assist with the mechanics of managing the space to help administrators adopt the correct settings but any disputes about file allocation must be resolved within the department.

If the nominated administrator/s changes then the Head of Department should submit a Change of Ownership form to indicate the change.
