Your personal folder is stored on a centralised, reliable and scalable storage solution called Argos. University IT Services is working to migrate (move) all university users from local storage solutions over to Argos. Read more about the migration to Argos here.
Departments, units or groups who need to share files and folders over a long periods of time can order extended storage within the same storage solution as personal folders via the extended service Data Storage.
