Data Storage J: and S: drive
You should now see a selection of snapshots in the right hand window. You can navigate through the folders and see complete saved copies of your J: drive. To view any file(s) you must copy them to another location such as your C: drive or another folder on your J: drive.
Mapping your J: drive on a standalone pc
Firstly open the map network drive window. This can be done either by:
1 Right click on My Computer and select map network drive
2 From within Windows Explorer click on Tools | Map network drive
You should now be faced with the following window.
From the Drive dropdown list select the J: drive. Note for consistency we recommend you select the J: drive as your drive letter however it isn’t imperative that you do so.
In the Folder box type the following:
\\stevens\staff\dcl0ng for a member of staff on MDS
\\hudson\pg\dcl0ng for a postgraduate
List of staff categories
If you have any difficulty in identifying which category you belong to please contact the Service Desk for further help.
Click on ‘Connect using a different user name’ link and a ‘Connect As’ window will appear.
Please note, we cannot guarantee the availability of a snapshot for a particular day, as these are managed in light of available space. However, regular backups to tape are also taken, and in the event that you cannot recover a particular version of a file, it may be possible to recover it from backup tapes, though this must be requested via the Service Desk and will take longer as tapes are stored off-site
