New student and staff filestore - My Documents channel will be changed in September
The CUFS / K Drive filestore will be replaced on 15 September with a new file storage service for students and staff. As a result of this we have to update the channel My Documents in the portal to provide access to the new service. This will mean that for a few weeks from 14 September access to that folder will not be available.
Please note that the CUFS / K drive service (available to both staff and students) will be unavailable from 6.00pm on Wednesday 14 September to allow files to be copied to the new service which will go live at 9.00am on 15 September.
One of the main benefits of the new service include increased quota for student users who will be allocated a minimum of 2GB of disk space. Support Staff receive a minimum of 5GB of space and Academic users receive at least 10GB of space.
Your My Files space will be accessible as drive o: and will be treated as a home folder for Windows computer systems. You should normally expect the o: drive to be connected automatically at logon on most Windows computers within the University. You can also find your MyFiles folder at::\\ads.bris.ac.uk\filestore\myfiles
