Data storage M, P and U drives for Mac

INTRODUCTION

This manual describes the central hard disks (M, P, and U) and the procedures to restore data.

BEFORE YOU GET STARTED

  • The manual is written for Mac OS X 10.9. There are other manuals for Windows available.
  • This manual uses a consistent style of writing: references to text and buttons on screens are printed in italics, information that you have to enter yourself is printed in bold.
  • Make sure you are connected to the UTnet via eduroam, campusnet or VPN.

CENTRAL HARD DISKS & BACKUPS

PLEASE NOTE: From the data saved on the hard disk of your Workstation no back up will be made. When you have trouble with you Workstation the hard disk could be erased. This is why it’s necessary that you save your data on the central hard disks. On an UT Workstation three central hard disks are configured by default:

  • M: Home directory for personal files
  • P: Project- and organisation documents
  • U: UT documents (i.e. corporate identity and software)

More information can be found in the service descriptions under Services.
