Remote File Access
ITS provides network file storage services that allow staff to collaborate and share documents, store work related files securely on the CPCC network, and enjoy the benefits of regular backups and access to the files from anywhere on the internet.
- U-Drive – Network File Storage for each employee. If you use 'My Documents' while logged into a College workstation, you are already using your U-Drive.
- H-Drive – Network File Storage for Departments. Store shared files in your department share on the H-Drive.
Accessing Network File Storage
We provide multiple methods of accessing network file storage. If you are working on a CPCC workstation, the U-Drive and H-Drive can be located by clicking on the Start menu and selecting My Computer. The share drives are located under Network Location. If you are off-campus, please use one of the methods shown below:
- Citrix Virtual Computer Environment - Citrix enables staff to interact with their U-Drive, H-Drive, and Outlook just as they would from any CPCC campus computer.
- OWA Share Drive Access - OWA allows staff to download files from their U-Drive and H-Drive folders.
Open Internet Explorer and go to webmail.cpcc.edu. Once you’re there, type in your CPCC network username and password.
Once logged in, select the “documents” button on the lower left hand side.
Once in the documents area, click on the “Open Location” link. Type in the following depending on the access you need.
- U: Drive (My Documents)
\\drives.cpcc.edu\users\<username> (replace <username> with your username)
- H: Drive (Data)
- J: Drive (Apps)
- Z: Drive (Allshare)
Once you’ve added the drive needed, you can click “Add to Favorites” so this is available for your next session.
Please note, this interface is read-only. It you would like to modify or upload files select the “Open in Windows Explorer” link.
