Basic Information - J Drive

The purpose of the J Drive account is to provide a good way for business students to submit homework for grading as they complete their projects. The account is a shared account and the faculty/instructor will have immediate and direct access to your files. The only files you should store there are files for your class. Space is limited and inspected by faculty and network administrators, it is not private file space.
