Accessing Additional Network Drives

  • Shared (S:) - 

    • The Shared drive (S: on a PC) is a network share that allows faculty/staff/students to share information with each other. For example, if you would like to share a document with another student, you can place a document into a folder on the Shared drive and anyone should be able to see it and collaborate with you. Please keep in mind that this drive is open to all faculty, staff and students so sensitive material should never be placed on the S: drive. Also, since this drive is open to everyone, the Shared drive should never be used to backup your documents.
      Note: There are two shared drives, one for students and another for faculty/staff. Faculty and staff have access to both network shares and students just have access to theirs. 

    The network share for faculty is \\sdrive.wit.edu\shared and the network share for students is \\ntwit03\shared.

    Note: Students should backup their work as well on another drive, on CD/DVD or on other devices.
