What are the "H" and "I" Drives?

"H" Drive - For students, faculty, and staff

  • Use this web space to store Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) instead of using diskettes. You can access these files from any PC on campus--in a computer lab, classroom console, or personal workstation
  • Install Eudora Light on your "H" drive (see "how to download & set up Eudora" information sheet), and you can access your e-mail while on campus.

"I" Drive - For faculty and students

  • Professors and students can exchange class-related work over the "I" drive

Types of Access

Two types of access are possible:  "Read" and "Write."
  • For "Read" access, you need Explorer 5.0 or higher.
  • For "Write" access, you must have "write permission" and your Explorer must  have Web-folder capabilities.

System Requirements
Windows 95, 98, 2000, or XP AND Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher


  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. In the Menu Bar, select "File" then Open."
  3. Type in the URL
    • To access the I: Drive - http://homes.sru.edu:81
    • To access the H: Drive (students) - http://homes.sru.edu:83/your user id
    • To access the H Drive (employees) - http://homes.seru.edu:82/your user id
Note: If you want to view the files in the I: Drive, you do not need to check "Open as web folders."
A logon window will appear asking for your username and password. Type in your network username and password in the appropriate field. The domain is SRUNET.  EXAMPLE:


Note to Microsoft XP Users:
Before entering your username, you must type "srunet/" (without the quotation marks).
A new window should open or appear in your start bar. You are now in the H: (or I:, depending on which you selected). You can save your files to this window.

To Save Files:

If you have "write" permission and want to save a file to the H:, I: or W: Drive, check the "Open as Web Folder."
If you want to save your file to the H: or I: Drive and your browser does not support web folders, call us at 724.738.4357 for advice on an alternative method (FTP).

If you want to save a file to the web folders, either click and drag the file into your I: Drive folder or copy and paste.
