Network Drive Information

This page contains detailed information about Pepperdine's network drives. These central storage areas remain your best option for sharing and saving your most critical documents. Files stored on this service are backed up on a daily basis and rotated off-site on a weekly basis. Restoration of these files in an emergency is provided for under our technology disaster recovery plan.

Network Drives at Pepperdine

  • R: Drive: Most of the programs and applications used at Pepperdine are installed from the R: drive. This drive is also known as "mal-prog."
  • S: Drive: Used by people inside a University department to store and share files with each other. Everyone in a department can save files to the S: drive.
  • U: Drive: Used departments that want to store and share files with people in other departments. This drive is also known as "fir."

S: Drive

This network disk space was created for people inside a Pepperdine University department to store and share files with each other.

Important notes:

  • The basic amount of S: drive space allotted to each University department is one gigabyte (GB) for which each department is charged $3.25 per month. This charge will appear on the department's monthly telecommunication bill.
  • If your department needs more than 1GB of S drive space (or your department wants to reduce its S: drive space), you can make those requests in 1GB increments on the Network Drive Space Request form. If you need assistance completing the form, call the Pepperdine Help Desk at (310) 506-HELP (x4357).

U: Drive

This network disk space was created for departments that want to store and share files with people in other departments.

Important notes:

If your department wants to request initial or additional U: drive space (or your department wants to reduce its U: drive space), you can make those requests in 1GB increments on the Network Drive Space Request form. If you need assistance completing the form, call the Anytime Support Help Desk at (310) 506-HELP (x4357).
  • U: drive space is charged $3.25 per month for each 1GB increment. This charge will appear on the department's monthly telecommunication bill.
