Your NetID comes with up to 100MB of storage space that you can use to store class work, research or any kind of electronic data. This storage space is accessible both on campus and off campus-- so no more dragging disks and CDs from campus to home and back. Just drop your work into your storage space and retrieve it from a campus computer lab, your classroom and from home. Your storage space will also give you access to your web site account.

Q: How do I save files to my personal 100MB storage space on a Windows computer?

On-Campus Networked Computers: Use the I: Drive.
When you log in to a campus Windows computer with your NSCC NetID, double click on the 'My computer' icon. You should find a 'i: drive' along with your usual 'a: drive', 'c: drive', and 'd: drive'. The 'i: drive' is your personal storage space. Anything you put in the 'i: drive' will be saved in your 100MB personal disk storage. Also, by default, anything saved to the 'My Documents' folder on that computer will automatically be saved to the 'i:drive' as well. Documents left anywhere other than the I drive or the My Documents folder will remain on the computer after you log out and will not be accessible from other computers on-campus or from your home computer.

On-Campus Wireless Connection: Use Remote Access
You can use the campus wireless connection to access your storage space; however, it is considered a remote access-- just like your off-campus connection. To access your storage space, you must use a SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) Program. Instructions on how to download and set up an SFTP program are available on the Remote Access page.

Off-Campus Access: Use Remote Access
To access your storage space from off-campus, you must use a SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) Program. Instructions on how to download and set up an SFTP program are available on the Remote Access page.
