Your SILS home directory is located at storage.unc.edu\sils. It holds personal folders ("home directories") where students, staff and faculty can store documents. Your home directory is accessed with the login name "onyen" and your onyen password. Your home directory is named after your Onyen. You are the only one with permission to access that folder. (Permissions can be changed in order to share files with others.)
Please keep the total space you use in your home directory within 2 GB. When you sign onto a computer in the SILS lab using your onyen login, you are attaching to your home directory. By default, your home directory will be mapped to the H:\ drive. Information on connecting to your individual home directory can be found here: http://sils.unc.edu/it-services/servers/home-directory. You can also connect to these drives on your personal computer from on-campus or off-campus. Off-campus access request a UNC VPN connection.
