Home Drive Move

On May 17th, 2020, Home Drives (H:) will be moved. For most users, there is no change in how you access your home drive. You will see the new name and location as H CIFSHD HOMEDIR. This change only applies to Home Drives and does not impact shared file areas (SFAs).

All VPN users and all users who access Home (H:) drives on a Mac, non-standard Windows PC or personal computer, must verify and update drive mappings to the new name of CIFSHD before 5/17 to ensure continued access.

Please reference the attached FAQ for some of the more common questions.
