Information about using FileWay  

Login to your home directory using FileWay

Your student H drive or Home Directory is simply a folder, or storage area, that is located on a network server.

  • Provides access to your files from basically any computer on campus or off campus.
  • Helps prevent loss of data if the local computer you are working on crashes or has a hard disk fail.
  • Secure - The data does not get erased until you delete it, because it isn't stored on the local computer; it’s on the server. No one but you can gain access to your files.
  • In order to gain access to your Home Directory you must first activate your network account
