Networks - Staff Network Drives
Logging on to PCs
When the PC is switched on and Windows operating system has loaded, a login box is displayed.
The box contains two edit fields that need to be filled in manually:
- Email Address
Once you have successfully logged into the workstation it is important to know the file sharing and file storage options available on the DCU network.
By opening Windows Explorer you will see the following network drive mappings.
This is your departmental share area.
On the L: drive there is an 'ALL' folder, everyone in the same department has full access (read/write/delete) to this 'ALL' folder.
There is an initial space restriction of 100MB on this folder (additional space is given when required).
The L: drive can also have 'special sub-folders' setup for specific requests, such as an admin group within the dept. with either just the admin group with full access and read-only to the rest of the dept. or the admin group with full access to the folder and the rest of the dept. with no access.
If you require access to a sub-folder on the L drive, written approval/authorisation must be sent by a direct manager/superviser to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the folder name and user to be granted access.
There is an initial space restriction of 50MB on these folders (additional space is given when required).
This is an inter-departmental share area. On the V: drive there is a 'Dummy' folder, all staff in DCU have read-only access to this folder (this is given to stop errors occurring when you log in).
The V: drive has 'special' folders setup for specific requests, such as for sharing confidential documents between departments.
Both the creation of these folders and the access to them must be requested by line managers through the help desk. There is an initial space restriction of 50MB on these folders (additional space is given when required).
