- Every student is allocated personal storage space for files, known as the U drive. The U drive is automatically available from every university workstation.
- You have 1 GB of storage space; it is not possible to request extra storage.
- If you are logged in to a university computer you can see how much space you still have available on your U drive: go to File Explorer and right-click on your U drive. Then click on "Properties".
We are unable to recover lost or deleted files or folders for you. You can however restore previous versions of files or folders yourself. A Previous Version is a snapshot of your U drive at a certain point in time. This snapshot is made twice a day and can be accessed for a maximum of eight weeks afterwards.
Click on the file or folder that you want to restore to an earlier time. Right-click on the file or folder and select the tab "Previous Versions". Then click on the version you wish to restore.
Tip: Have you completely deleted a file, so that you no longer have a previous version? Then one option is to restore a previous version of the entire folder which contained the file. You can even restore a previous version of your entire U drive. Your file will then be automatically restored, but take care that you do not replace other, newer files with older versions!
If you are experiencing problems with your U drive, check whether you have the same problem at another workstation, or restart your computer. If the problem persists, please contact us.
You can use your personal U drive on your own laptop, phone or tablet. All you need is an internet connection.
