Request a New S: Drive Folder
This tutorial applies to the following operating system(s):
Windows - Macintosh
After completion, you will understand the UI S-drive folder structure and how to request new folders.
Folders on the S: drive are organized in a multi-level structure. This tutorial will explain basic S: drive folder structure and how to create new folders on the S: drive.
First Level: Every department at the University of Idaho has a main folder at the root of the S: drive, such as S:/DepartmentName - Example: S:/ITS
Second Level: The second level is where new folder requests can be made. This will contain a folder name that supports its function. An example would be a "Finance" folder for all finance information - Example: S:/ITS/Finance
How to Request a Folder
Only board appointed full time faculty and staff can request a new folder to be created. A control group will be created for this request that will allow the owner to provide access to the folder using the Account Management Page. Send an email to email@example.com and include the following information:
- Full path of new folder: (Example - S:/DepartmentName/NewFolder)
- Owner of control group: (Example - jvandal)
What if I need to change the owner of the folder?
To request a change in folder ownership, simply send an email with the request to the Help Desk via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 208-885-HELP or in person at our main office in the Idaho Commons building, TLC room 128. We will contact the new owner to confirm they wish to take over responsibilities and make the change.
If you have any further questions please contact the ITS Help Desk.
