Question: What if a folder I need access to is not showing up in the J: drive?
Answer: You will need to verify with your supervisor that you should have access to that folder. Your supervisor will need to contact the data owner to request access rights. The data owner must email the TAC to make the request.
Question: What if I share folders with another department? How do they access my shared folders?
Answer: Anyone not in the same department or college as you will need to manually map a drive to access your shared folder. Make sure the data owner has granted them permission to access the shared folder. Provide them with the full path to the folder, then have them contact TAC if they need assistance mapping the drive.
