From time to time, a network service may not be available. Sometimes these periods of unavailability are scheduled, in order that the service may be updated or reconfigured in some way. Sometimes these periods occur due to problems with the service.
ICT tracks the status of all campus network services.
If you are having problems with your file storage, please contact the ICT Help Desk.
In August of 2010, 'folder.usask.ca' (which provided individual file storage for students) and 'cabinet.usask.ca' (which provided individual file storage space for faculty, staff, and researchers) were merged into a new Cabinet individual file storage service for all students, faculty, and staff at the U of S.
Users who have mapped a drive to '\\folder.usask.ca\student$' will find that this path is now equivalent to '\\cabinet.usask.ca\work$'. This has been done as a convenience to allow users time to switch their desktops over to mapping a drive to the Cabinet path. The name 'folder.usask.ca' will be retired in October, 2010.
If you previously had both the Folder and the Cabinet service (for example, if you were both an employee and a student at the UofS), you will find that the data from your Folder.usask.ca account is now found in a sub-folder of your new Cabinet.usask.ca account called 'folder-data'.
