The P drive netshare is used to store files containing PII and is only accessible in Secure Apps (https://secureapps.ccsu.edu). 

How to Access:

The P drive is only accessible in Secure Apps (https://secureapps.ccsu.edu), it can be located in File Explorer (the yellow folder icon).  In conjunction with the P drive, you also have a T drive (transfer drive) to use to transfer files from your email or local computer to the P drive. To move files from your computer to the P drive:

  1. First save the file(s) from your email or computer to the T drive netshare (transfer drive).
  2. From within Secure Apps, open both the "T drive" and the "P drive" from File Explorer (the yellow folder icon).
  3. Click and drag (or cut and paste) the file(s)s from the T drive folder to the P drive folder.

Please note, files must be moved out of the T drive within 24 hours otherwise they are deleted. 

The T drive is automatically created for anyone with access to Secure Apps. 

On Windows computers, the T drive is mapped automatically.

On Macs, you will need to connect to the T drive:
