Your Home Drive

Are you aware that you have a personal virtual storage drive? Once you are signed into your workstation, you have the option to save to the home drive or (H:) drive rather than to the computer. All employees are urged to save to their home drives rather than to the desktop or computer. As a matter of fact, students are no longer able to save to the computer and can only save to their home drives. 
 
Advantages to saving to the home drive are:
  • If the computer breaks or your lose your jump drive, you still have access to all of your files 
  • Don't have to deal with a jump/thumb drive
  • Files can be accessed remotely from home - http://eisd-home.eisd.net/htcomnet 
  • Files can be accessed from a mobile device such as a smart phone or iPad (compatible software must be on device) - How To Access
To save to your Home Drive: 
When saving a document, choose the (H:) drive from the drop-down menu
