To make the use of technology easier at SVSU, we have allocated 20GB of disk space on our network to each employee. This space is commonly called the M: Drive.
Macintosh Users: You may connect to NetStorage by setting up WebDav.
You may access your M: Drive from home, on campus, or from anywhere on the Internet via a new web-based service called NetStorage.
Since your M: Drive is on an SVSU server, you will have to download (copy) files to your computer to work on those files, and you have to upload (copy) them back to your M: drive on the SVSU Server.
Note: When you are logged on to the network in the MicroLabs on campus, you can easily access the M: Drive just like any other drive (for example the C: drive, or Zip drive), under My Computer.
Open Microsoft Internet Explorer browser.
Change the URL to: http://netstorage.svsu.edu.

Double-click on your UserID and you will be inside of your "M:" drive.
(The folder named with your UserID is your "M:" drive.)
You must download the files from your M: Drive to your local computer to be able to work with the files.

Your M: Drive is backed up at night and deleted files can be recovered for up to four weeks if necessary. We do not maintain versions of your files. You are encouraged to maintain your own backups of your files. Recovery of a file may take up to 72 hours (weekends not included).
