Group folders is an optional service that provides access to one or more network drives where personal or group data can be stored. Data is secured by spreading the information across multiple drives, multiple servers, and one or more protected server halls (depending on the level of service ordered).
All full-time university employees have the option of ordering group folders upon approval by their head of department (or equivalent manager). Contact your immediate manager to discuss your needs, group level and name standard, and obtain approval before placing an order.
All group folders are stored on a centralised, reliable and scalable storage solution known within the University as Argos. University IT Services (UIT) is currently working to consolidate personal folder storage solutions in Argos. The project also involves a number of previous storage solutions for group folders.Learn more about the migration project, and see when your campus is scheduled to move to the system.
Group folders are available in different levels. It is up to your head of department (or equivalent manager) to decide which level is appropriate for your needs.
