Standard Access to Personal Folders
Accessing Files via Web Browser
ETS provides a quick and easy way to access your important files using the web browser. All you have to do is click here to access your files from the web.
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_home directory (/home/username/public_html – permissions 755) that is publicly accessible as a web page through the url http://www.engr.uconn.edu/~username. For more information about your personal web space, you can check here.
