Shared Drive

Master
Content

The CCSC Shared Drive is a server for our users that serves as a data storage location. These shared drive folders are accessible from any computer connected to the internet. If you have received training on any of our flow cytometers, you should automatically have access to the shared drive every time you login to one of our computers.

The shared drive allows each lab 1GB of data storage space at no charge. If you require more than 1GB of storage space, feel free to use what you require, (no authorization, permission or notification required), and you will simply be charged a minimal yearly fee ($5/year for each GB over 1GB).
