Personal Network Disk Space

Shepherd University provides each student with personal space on a server called the "M" drive. This drive is provided for students to store assignments when using any campus owned computer. When logged on to a computer, go to My Computer to see your "M" drive.

If you receive an error message when trying to save to the "M" drive (cannot write, cannot create folder or cannot create file to M:), go to My Computer and right click on the "M" drive. Click on Properties. The amount of used and free space will be displayed. It is up to the student to maintain their drive by removing out-dated files. Delete any files you created which are no longer needed. Use USB drives, sometimes called thumb, jump or flash drives, and CDRW's to save files on. Discounts can be found @

There are files crucial to the operation of this drive and contain important information about your account.  Please do not delete any files you are not sure of, for example, the autouser.bat file.  If you are in doubt, please contact the User Support Desk   @ 304-876-5457.
