Previous File Storage

Do you have personal files saved on your personal student UFV network drive before September 2012?

  • In September 2012, UFV’s network file storage system for students was changed.

  • UFV students from Summer 2012 and earlier semesters copied or moved any personal files they want saved from NetStorage at gw.ufv.ca/NetStorage at Home@UCFV (also known as R:Drive).

  • After May 31, 2013, students will no longer have access to their personal files on the old file NetStorage file system.

  • The logical place students moved their files is to their new HomeDir at gateway.ufv.ca.
