CHEC U: Drives

When you work in the CHEC Computer Labs you are unable to save your work to the hard drive of the machine you are working on. Instead save your work to what is known as the U: drive. Your U: drive is hard drive space on the network that has been set aside for each student. Your U: drive is accessible from any computer in the computers labs, library or Student Learning Centre at CHEC and can only be seen by you.

It is highly recommended not to save files to the computer "Desktop" as there is high risk of losing this data and it slows down the login process.

To access your U: Drive double click on "This PC" on the Desktop
