Connect to your Home Directory
A Home Directory, often referred to as an H: Drive (formerly known as Locker), is space on a campus server where you can store files and documents. You can access your Home Directory when logging into a computer on the UIndy network with your UIndy credentials.
Though H: Drive is available we recommend the use of Google Drive for nearly all of your document storage needs. Google Drive has better security options, more flexible file sharing, individual backup file restoration, and is less expensive to support.
