Faculty/Staff Shared Network Storage
Network File Storage
Faculty and staff have access to two types of network file storage:
OneDrive is for the storage of personal work-related files.
The Q Drive is a secure location for the storage and sharing of departmental, committee, or project-related files where access is limited to a specific group of users.
What kinds of data can be stored?
Q:Drive data storage is intended for critical data access from multiple locations on campus. Data stored on the KSC File Server is used for departmental files which need to be shared among members of a department, and collaborative areas for special projects and committees.
How much data can I store on the Q:Drive?
You have 1TB of space in OneDrive! That’s a lot of space. 1TB=1,000 GB. You can upload and store files up to 10GB in size.
How can I request a directory on the Q:Drive?
To request a directory on the Q:Drive, please fill out a Request for Department or Project Share on File Server.
Can I share OneDrive documents with student, staff, and faculty and people outside of KSC?
Yes! You can share documents and folders with specific KSC people or share your files with lots of KSC people and users outside of our organization.
How can I request access to the Q:Drive or other departmental resources for my student employee?
This form requests access for a KSC student worker whose job responsibility requires access to information located on the Q:Drive &/or for them to login with a unique profile to a faculty/staff workstation.
Occasionally, hard drives on faculty and staff computers fail, files become corrupt or data is accidentally deleted from system.
The Q:Drive is backed up every night. If a file is deleted and needs to be restored, the IT Group can restore that data up to the last backup.
The user should fill out a Data Restore Request Form and submit it to the HelpDesk.
If a KSC employee chooses not to use OneDrive or Q:Drives to backup critical documents and suffers a hard drive failure, the employee’s department or School will be responsible for paying for data recovery.
Personal Data on College Owned Computers
Computers provided by Keene State College are supplied to employees to meet work-related needs. The IT Group respects the importance of an individual employee’s personal, non-work-related data, but we are not responsible for backing up or restoring that data. Employees who store personal data such as pictures and music are responsible for backing up and archiving that data.
