My Documents, '720staff\StaffHome' (P:) or Username Drive mounted on MAC desktop: All are your Home Folder. You are currently limited to 600 MB of space. Once you reach the maximum limit of space, you will receive a warning and will no longer be able to save.
Network drives: New_Staff Share on '720 Staff' or New_StaffShare is where documents can be saved to share with members of your staff, grade level or dept. PC Only: StudentShare on '720student" (K:) is where students can save or access shared documents & files. StudentHome on '720student' (R:) is where students home folders are located. They are organized by graduation year & ID #. Saving and sharing documents through Google Drive is recommended, though, since it is more consistent across devices (PC, Mac, iPad, Chromebook).
