The UIC provides drive space on our Transfer Server ( so that users of the facility have a method to transfer files from our equipment to other computers or off line storage devices. The purpose of the space is not for long-term storage of your data. Please remove your files from the local computer and the server as soon as possible so that others can use the space. Files left on the server for over 30 days will be deleted. If you need longer-term storage or assistance in transferring to removable media, please contact UIC staff to make arrangements. Thank you.
