File Storage and Backup

If you often use computers at multiple locations, the Central File Server is a great way to store and safeguard your files. It is important that you protect your work by backing up your files!

When you log in to a MAU-computer it connects your home directory automatically and works just like a folder that is on the computer itself. This is where you should save your work and you can save up to 5 GB​​. It is only you who can see what your folder contains, and backup runs every day of all your files that are saved here.

Where do I find my home directory?


On a PC you will find your home directory under M:\ in Windows Explorer. It has a name that corresponds to your computer identity.
