Personal file space

Each student account is connected to a personal file space, the home directory, on the University's central computers. You should always save your files there. This is the only way of being certain that the files are available the next time you want to access them. Your files are accessible regardless of which of the University's computers you have logged onto.

From a Windows computer you find your home directory under "Network Locations". A disc icon next to your user name.

How much disk space do I have?

All students get 200 MB disk space on their home directory.

Logon to Helpdeskexternal link to see how much space you have left.

If you need more space, i.e. for project work, logon to Helpdeskexternal link and place a query for more space.

Files which have disappeared or are damaged

Each night your files are backed up; the backup is stored for a year. This means that if a file in your personal file space for some reason disappears or is damaged, there is a possibility to obtain the file from the backup.

In order to obtain files which have disappeared or become damaged, register an IT support case at Helpdesk self-serviceexternal link.

In the query you need to state:

  • What files you want to re-create
  • What folder they were in
  • The date when the file(s) were lost.

Content on University student computers

Content saved on University student computers can disappear at any time. No backup or other archiving is normally done on local discs.

How can I access my home directory when not logged on at a University computer?

If you want access to your files when NOT at the University (or while connected to the University wireless network) use https://myfiles.student.hh.seexternal link, opens in new window

Log on using your student account.

More than one student account

If you have several student accounts, you also have access to several file spaces. It is not possible to have more than one connection between a computer and a file space at the same time, so if you want to copy files between different student accounts you need to log on at https://myfiles.student.hh.seexternal link, opens in new window.
