Student Filespace Access

 

Note: The terms username and password in this document refer to your email/mcsquare username and password.

Accessing your filespace from a Windows Lab computer

Students who use their Messiah username and password to login to the lab computers will have their filespace mapped automatically to the K: drive and the Q: drive. You can get to it by selecting the filespace icon from the Start Menu under Messiah Programs, Network Services.

If you get this message: "The path K:\ does not exist or is not a directory", then your filespace was not mapped. The most likely causes of this are not using your Messiah login or you are not a student. If your K: drive is not mapping when it should, please email resnet@messiah.edu or call x3333 and tell us about it.
