Each student with a CSE account has one gigabyte of storage available on the CSE file system. That storage is known as your "home directory" and can be accessed in several ways.
On the Windows machines in the CSE laboratories, your home directory is automatically mounted when you log onto the system and is available as the H: drive.
To access your home directory from a non-CSE machine (such as your own machine), you may be able to mount the CSE file system if you're on MSU's campus. Otherwise, you can use a file transfer program.
Storing files on the CSE system is convenient for several reasons: the CSE file system is backed up regularly, your files are accessible to you from any machine which has Internet access, and each file is time stamped to show the date and time of the last modification. Those file time stamps are important if you make a mistake while using the handin system, since the time stamp on your file for a computer project can be used to prove that you completed it on time.
You can mount the CSE file system on your local PC or Mac so that it will appear as another disk on your local machine (often called the H: drive).
Once you install the program, open it. At the top of the window, you should see something like this:
Enter the following information:
On the right side of the main window you will now see the same files that are on your H: drive on the lab computers. The left side shows files that are on your computer. You can now double click or drag files from one side to the other.
