File and Data Storage

South Dakota State University offers data storage, backup, and recovery options for faculty and staff. We do not offer recovery options for students.


Network Storage for Colleges and Departments

Colleges, as well as individual departments, have network storage available at no cost to them.  The amount of storage is defined as 1 Gigabyte per person for the College level network share and 1 Gigabyte per person for the departmental share.  More space can be requested using the Hard Drive Server Storage Request form on InsideState.  Network storage spaces are backed up regularly and can be recovered should an issue arise.


Network Storage for Faculty and Staff 

Individual network storage is available for each employee at South Dakota State University. The current space allocated for faculty and staff is 5 Gigabytes.  More space is available and can be purchased using the Hard Drive Server Storage Request form on InsideState.  Network storage spaces are backed up regularly and can be recovered should an issue arise.


Cloud Storage for Faculty, Staff, and Students 

South Dakota State University provides access to two cloud-based storage systems.

  • Box Storage Accounts give you access to unlimited storage.  Box storage allows you to collaborate with others by allowing you to share files and folders. Box can be accessed at sdsu.box.com.
