We're increasing your J Drive storage

(26 July 2019)

As part of The Big 3, we will provide increased J drives or Home Directories for all staff and students users. The standard storage allocation will increase from 400MB to 5GB, and what’s more we’ll be migrating your files for you. Look out for an email about this next week.

We will be carrying out migrations to the new storage overnight throughout August and September. During migrations, you must log off, turn off your PC and not access your J Drive/Home Directory while the work is taking place. Please note, this migration is for J Drive/Home Directory only. We will be discussing the migration of S Drives with Departments and will have more information in due course. Any questions or concerns, please contact IT Service Desk.

Have something to include?

Please liaise with the designated contact for your department or college. For further guidance, email
