Have you ever forgotten your jump drive when you needed to save a paper? Or maybe experienced a technological “failure” that left you without your work? The University offers a FREE tool to counter these issues.
VolSpace is a service offered by OIT (Office of Information Technology) to everyone with a UNIX account. It offers space on their server for storing files or creating personal Web pages. There are even training videos available to teach you how to use your VolSpace. Show Me!
One use of VolSpace is to make save copies of your work in case you forget your jump drive, or you can use it instead of a jump drive for files that you need access to from various computers. Copies put in your VolSpace will be available wherever you are!
The UT Libraries Studio has directions on how to use VolSpace for saving and storing work.
