If you are an employee with a Network User ID, you have access to one personal directory called the F: drive on your PC or any PC located on a CCAC campus. You can create folders under this directory to organize your files and to easily store any files you may need across multiple campuses. It is strongly suggested storing your files on your F Drive and not on the computer or external drive.
