Access your files

The best way to access your H Drive and file shares depends where you are, and the type of computer you are using. More options are available using a campus network connection, or through a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection if one is available to you. Please look at our information about using your file storage while working from home.

Your computer

Windows 10
ITS Managed Desktop or Windows 10 computer

Personal filestore (H Drive)
Shared filestore (M Drive)
Storage Now folders (part of your M Drive)

If your computer has not been prepared for off-campus use, you may not be able to access your files. Please contact IT Services to have your computer prepared for off-campus working.


Personal filestore (H Drive)
Shared filestore

Non-managed Windows computer

Windows 10 is our current supported version.
You can access your files on or off campus.

Your location

At Warwick

While on campus, we recommend you connect directly to the network, and use your H: and M: drives as normal. If you're using a Managed workstation, they should already be present.

If your workstation is unmanaged, or is not running Windows, the details on the left should help you to connect.

At home or on the move

If you are working off-campus, whether at home or somewhere else, you can still use your personal and shared folders.

If you have access to the Warwick VPN you will be able to connect to your storage as if you were connected directly to the campus network.

If you can't use the VPN, you can still use MyFiles to get to your files.
