NAS: Personal Share

Creating the Share

University employees may request the creation of a personal share to store work related documents and data by contacting IT Support. Access to a personal share is restricted to a single user and is assigned to a single NetID. IT staff will work with the employee to create the share and  configure the appropriate permissions and access.

Share Location

Your personal NAS share will be located at the following network location:


Where [NetID] is your personal NetID.


Initially, personal shares are allotted 5 GB per user. That allotment (also referred to as "quota") may be increased as needed. Individual owners must contact IT Support to request increases in space. Before a quota can be increased, IT will need to verify that the share is only being used to store work-related files.

Accessing Someone Else's Personal Share

Requests to access the personal shares by anyone other than the "owner" of the share should be submitted by the department chair or director of the organizational unit and then signed by the President of the University.
