Network Storage

When your Elon user account is created, a personal storage space is also created for your use. This space - known as network storage - is a convenient place to store files in a way that can be accessed from computers both on and off campus. It is also a good place to keep a second copy of important files from your desktop or laptop computer.

Files stored in your network storage space can be easily accessed from any computer on the campus network, but also from off campus with the use of the VPN Client.

Files in network storage are not backed up. It is not recommended that you keep the only copy of any important file on your network storage space.

Use the links in the Quick Links panel to learn how to access and disconnect from your network storage.
