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 for $.08/GB/month.

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.
