Shared Drive (Files@Iowa)

Shared Drives (Files@Iowa) is a service offered by ITS that allows users to save their files to a backed up location that is accessible from work or home 24 hours a day 7 days a week. This space is also known as an "L: Drive or U: Drive".  The goal of this service is to provide file storage for departments, units, or colleges.

Each department will be allocated 1 GB of file space per full-time employee (FTE). Departments who would like additional file space may purchase it. Pricing is based on allocated file space not on actual file space usage.

30 day snapshots are online for users to do a "self-restore". Backups of data are kept for 6 months. Contact the ITS Help Desk if you need assistance with a previous version or a restore.

Access from off campus is available through VPN (UI Anywhere) or Virtual Desktop
