Student labs have been converted to Microsoft Windows XP and student accounts have been migrated. Students will see a new network drive. This new drive will be identified by the letter “O” and contains the student's old Favorites, My Documents, and Desktop files. The "O" drive can be accessed through the My Computer icon when logged on to a campus computer.

The "O" drive is read-only and the contents will be unavailable after December 1, 2005. Students are advised to review the contents of their O drive and move all wanted files to the M drive. (The M drive is personal space accessible from any campus computer.)
