Due to numerous spyware, malware, ransomware, and virus concerns, ITS no longer offers direct access to your U:\ drive from off-campus. ITS suggests a better two-step solution.
Step #1: Use Fredonia's Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution to connect to campus. Please see Getting started with the Fredonia Virtual Private Network (VPN) Services.
Step #2: Control your office Windows or MAC computer from anywhere. Please see How To Access Your Computer Remotely. This solution not only allows you to access your U:\ drive from off-campus but also allows you to use all applications installed on your office computer. NOTE: Faculty that have only an assigned laptop computer and transport said laptop off-campus can contact ITS at ITS.ServiceCenter@fredonia.edu for a possible Windows solution.
For Category I - Public Data and Category II - Private Data, ITS recommends saving files / folders from your U:\ drive to Google Drive when on campus.
Students can access their U: drives by connecting to Virtual Labs (Fredonia's Virtual Windows 10 Computing Lab).
