Standard Access to Personal Folders
Note: this does not apply to migrated computers that you login to using your NetID and password, but your H drive can still be mapped manually as described below. When you login to your computer using your engineering username and password your 10GB private storage will be available as your H: drive. Files stored there are not written to your local PC, but are written over the network to \\hnas.engr.uconn.edu\EngrUsers\users\username\ private_home. This means they can be made available from any computer that you use.
ECS Linux Users
Your personal folder is automatically mounted as /home/username. The private_home directory (/home/username/private_home) and has permissions of 700 (accessible only to you) and should be your first choice for saving all your files. There is also a public_html directory (/home/username/public_html) with permissions 755.
You can also create a personal website, accessible through a browser at http://www.engr.uconn.edu/~username – for more information see here.
