The WEC department has network file storage for multiple uses. Our T: Drive is used for shared documents and lab folders. Our U: drive is your personal folder for file storage. If you are a new student and wish to have a U: Drive folder setup, please send an email to Tom Barnash to request one.

These directions are for Windows 10, Mac OSX directions are here.
