COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE

Accessing the W (Pub) Drive

AgIT Operations

Introduction

Procedure No. S1.3.10

The following are instructions for campus machines that are not on our network (i.e. for staff in ECN that would need to use the W drive). The W drive was moved to a new server at the end of June, 2007. The following email was sent as notification: "If you are having difficulties accessing the "W" drive, please logout and then login to your computer. This will reconnect you to the new server."

Procedure Statement

The W drive is a public folder housed on an AgIT server at Purdue that is provided as a convenient location for the short-term storage of shared computer files. All users on the Purdue West Lafayette campus have full access to the W drive and can add, modify, or delete folders to their liking. Staff of Extension and the School of Agriculture may now use this drive to share files with others in the Purdue community.

Reason for Procedure

Recent events have suggested that information on accessing the W (Pub) drive would be useful. We believe the information below will provide guidance for accessing this public folder.

Procedure Specifics

The following are instructions on how to access this drive.

How Do I Access the W (Pub) Drive?

All users on the AgIT domain have a W drive mapped to their office computer. 1. Double-click the My Computer icon on your desktop. 2. Double-click the W:\ drive. 3. You are now in the W (Pub) drive. Feel free to begin browsing and adding files. You can also access the files on the W drive from your home computer after connecting to the AG Virtual Private Network (VPN).
