Through CFAPS faculty and staff can quickly and easily back-up their data to their personal network folder. This will prevent the accidental loss of data due to hard disk failure or computer theft. The maximum amount of data that staff or faculty can back up is 1 gigabyte (1 GB) on their personal network space. To get personal back-up disk space, your department must have CFAPS in place.
Through the Central File service of CFAPS you can store and share commonly accessed files within a shared network environment available to your department or group. This reduces the need to send large attachments through emails. Every department can get a Shared Departmental Folder created (size of 2 GB) for accessing common and shared documents.
You can access the Shared Departmental folders by clicking on "My Computer" and selecting the Departmental Shared (S:) drive. If you can not see this and need to manually connect to a shared or personal CFAPS folder, follow the below instructions.
CFAPS personal and departmental folders can be access off campus using RU-VPN2.
