Accessing your home directory from a Windows PC

If you have an account on the CUED Teaching System, you have a home directory there which you can use to store files. In particular, you may want to store unofficial web pages there.

You can access your home directory as a 'network drive' from a Windows PC within the Department, and you can then copy and edit files there just as you would any other files on your computer. There are instructions published by Microsoft for using Windows XP to connect to a network drive; the method is very similar for other versions of Windows. The network path to which you should connect is:

\\file-serv.eng.cam.ac.uk\userid

replacing userid with your own userid. You should use your Teaching System userid and password.

These home directories have a default quota. For more details see this page

If you have difficulty in connecting to the server, please contact pc-support@eng.cam.ac.uk
