Your network drive may also be called a network share or an N drive. They all refer to the same thing – network storage that you can access anytime you are connected to the network, no matter whether you are on or off campus. For more information, see the Student Survival Guide N drive intro video.
When you look at the drives on your computer, your Algonquin network drive is listed as HOME (\\Algshare).
Note: Staff and Students also have access to additional cloud hosted storage via Microsoft OneDrive. Use your college email info to access your OneDrive. Contact Microsoft for any issues with this service. For more information on other storage options, see What storage options do I have other than my Algonquin N drive?
Using VPN with your N drive
When at home or off campus, you need to run the VPN Cisco Anyconnect client before you can connect to your Algonquin network share drive (N drive). Before that, you will not be able to access your N drive.
The instructions for setting up your N drive to work with VPN are the same as when you are on the local network on campus – just make sure you are connected with VPN first.
