University policy states that research data must be kept on the Research Store, sometimes referred to as the Q drive.
If you have a data sharing agreement please discuss security issues with your partner(s), particularly where the agreement means that data is stored on their servers.
You have two options:
In both cases the Research Store will be listed as StudentSharedDrive. Your folder(s) will be in the Research folder.
If you cannot use the Remote Desktop, you can use MyFiles. The Research Store will be listed as Student&ResearchSharedDrive. Your folder(s) will be in the Research folder.
To get a file from the Research Store use the ‘Download’ option. To put a file on the Research Store use the ‘Upload’ option.
Sensitive information should be encrypted if it is not being stored on the Research Store; this may be because you have data on a device and cannot transfer it to the Research Store.
DTS have a page offering detailed guidance on encrypting files
If you need to send files to yourself or colleagues, please use https://zendto.shu.ac.uk This sends a secure download link to your colleague. For additional security you can create a password which your colleague will need to enter before they download the file.
You can also email an encrypted file but bear in mind some services may limit the size of file which can be sent or received.
