As you know, most departments have a storage area on the FILE server for departmental use. For example, within the Departments folder (aka the H: drive in Windows) there is a "Chemistry" folder for the chemistry department, a "Media Services" folder for the media services department, etc.
Each department folder contains two folders: Public and Private. This is a reminder about how the Public and Private folders function.
· The Public folder is accessible by any user with a valid LVC username and password. The employees in your department can view, copy, add, delete and modify all folders and files within the Public folder. Other employees and students can view and copy files and folders within the Public folder but cannot add, delete or modify them.*
· The Private folder is accessible only by the employees in your department. These users may view, copy, add, delete and modify all folders and files within this folder. Students and other employees do not have access to your department's Private folder or any files or folders within it.
We recommend that you regularly review the folders and files in your department's Public folder to be sure that none of them contains any personal, private or confidential information.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please email David Shapiro (firstname.lastname@example.org) or me (email@example.com). We also can be reached by calling ext. 6072.
Best wishes for a good academic year!
* There is one exception: The "drop_box" folder is set up to allow a user to add files but not to view, copy, delete or modify them.
