To grant other users permissions to your folders


Please note: This option is only available to users in Windows. Those on a Mac can access these options by logging into CloudPC and launching Windows Explorer.

  1. Right click on the desired folder (not a file)
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click on the Security tab
  4. Choose the Edit... button
  5. Choose the Add... button
  6. In the box marked "Enter the object names to select", type the name of user or group desired
    1. For example, on a Public folder, you could type "everyone"
    2. When looking for an individual user, you can type their username or attempt to search using the person's full name
  7. Choose the Check Names... button
    1. If only one object is found, you will remain in that box and can choose the OK button
    2. If more than one object is found, another window will pop up with a list from which you should choose the desired user/group. Then click OK twice.
  8. Check the boxes in the Permissions list at the bottom for the permission(s) desired
    1. The defaults - Read & execute, List folder contents, and Read - are probably appropriate in most cases
    2. If you wish to collaborate with others, add Modify and Write
  9. Click Apply
  10. Click OK to close the Permissions window, and click OK again to close the Properties window

The U: drive can be accessed the same way as the F: drive.


Please be careful when adjusting permissions on your account folders.

  • Do not adjust the top level permissions - only permissions on subfolders within your U:/username folder.
  • Carefully observe what rights you grant to which users.

The Employee Network Drives (G, O, and P)


The T: drive contains one folder for each semester you've been at Drew. Inside is what the K: drive showed you during that semester. This archive allows you to find course specific information from earlier in your time at Drew.

**Please note: Summer courses will access their current course folders via the T: drive, rather than through the K: drive. Students and faculty will find their folders in, for example, "T:\2018 Summer Terms".

The R: drive is the “old attic,” a legacy drive that contains an older system of network software and communication processes. You will generally not need to use this drive and students generally do not have access to it.
