The I:\ Drive location is a PRIVATE area allocated to every faculty and staff member in the School of Business. This location physically resides on a server (SBACLUSTER) that is maintained by SBA Information Technologies in 201 Laws Hall.
Due to the fact that the server is backed up each evening, the I:\ Drive presents itself as a more reliable location for one's data to reside as opposed to one's local C:\ Drive. In the event of critical hardware failure on the server, FSB Information Technologies would be able to restore data using the tape backups. In contrast, if your local C:\ Drive experiences hardware failure, it would be impossible to recover any lost data.
Viruses are becoming a serious threat in today's computing environment. Therefore, the I:\ Drive runs constant virus protection. As you place data on the I:\ Drive or retrieve data from the I:\ Drive, the data is scanned for viruses preventing any virus spreading. While your individual computer does run virus protection, the I:\ Drive guarantees the ability to scan for the latest viruses.
Avoid the hassle of transferring your files when receiving a new system.
Using FTP Access, you can access your I:\ Drive from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.
The I:\ Drive's privacy ensures only you will have access to your personal data.
