When you log on to a computer on any Madison Area Technical College campus with your username and password, you will be automatically connected to your home directory. A home directory is simply a folder, or storage area, that is located on a network server.
An example would be:
For the student, Wolfie A. Madison, with username WAMadison2, the directory might be named: WAMadison2 on Student\Data2\Users\S’ (H:)
You can save and open files to and from this directory just as if it were the local hard drive or flash drive. To save to your home directory, Use the menu: File, “Save as…”, select your home directory (H:) drive and save the file.
When you login to another campus computer, you'll be able to access files saved to your home directory.
Any items saved to another location on a campus computer, such as the C: drive or hard drive, will be deleted automatically when you log off. Those files cannot be retrieved.
If you do not see your home directory (H) drive listed under My Computer (Windows XP) or Computer (Windows 7) when you login to an on-campus computer, or have other questions about your home directory, contact the Help Desks.
