In early June 2020, the Division of Information Technology began the final phase of a project to retire student Home Directories—the networked personal storage space for students only accessible from workstations on the FIT campus. The Home Directory is sometimes referred to as the N Drive, Y Drive, or Campus Drive.
The decision to retire student Home Directories was made during the Fall 2019 semester to further utilize cloud storage provided with Google Drive as part of our G Suite for Education agreement.
Once you see your Home Directory zip file in your Google Drive follow the step-by-step instructions below.
