The T Drive (Thawspace) is a local, shared, public storage space on our machines that persists between computer restarts. This ThawSpace folder is the only location on a lab computer to save a file for use in a future session on that computer. Files saved in any other location are deleted at the end of each user session.

The Thawspace storage space is tied to each individual machine. Anyone on the machine has access to it, including the ability to view, alter, or delete any files located there.  It is not intended as long term storage.

Students looking for long term, secure storage should use their Google Drive account, included with their email account.  As students, they have unlimited storage space through Google Drive, and can access it from any networked device.
