O: Drive (Archive Drive)

What is it?

The O: drive provides extra capacity in addition to the N: drive and is primarily for static files that are used less frequently.

Please note: the O: drive is not a suitable location for files that change rapidly. We recommend that you continue to use the N: drive for such files.


Your personal allocated space is 40GB.
*Quota increases are currently not being given for this drive*


The O: drive will automatically appear for those using the Staff WTS or Desktop@UCL services.

Users of standalone/departmental machines will need to manually map their O: drives.

For detailed instructions, please submit your UCL userid via the online form.

Backups/file restores

Backups are made every night of all files created or modified since the preceding night's backup. 

If you delete a file that was created the same day, it will not be possible to recover it.  The date the file was created or changed must be a previous day, it cannot be the same date that the file was lost. More information about backups and file restores.
