Saving to P Drive: Overview

This page will show you how to save files to your personal network space, or "P: Drive."  Saving to your P: drive will make sure that you can use what you have saved after you leave the library -- if you save to the desktop or somewhere else on a library computer, it probably won't be there if you come back!

Once a file is saved to your P: Drive, you can access that file on any computer on campus.
