Faculty of Economics

How do I transfer files from the old Economics network to the PWF?

Files that were stored last year on the F: drive of the Economics Faculty network, can still be seen from a PWF workstation, and can be copied to your PWF filespace so that you can continue to use them. Please follow the instructions below:

Login to a PWF machine

Click on Start > run and type cmd in the box and click ok

Type one of the following commands
net use * \\\user if you are an undergraduate or MPhil student
net use * \\\user1 if you are a PhD student

After a pause you will be asked for your username and password on the Economics system.

When this has been accepted you will be told which drive letter has been connected (usually T:). You can then use my computer to see the files on T: There should be a folder with the same name as your username, usually in a subfolder of 2006, 2007 or 2008 (if you are an undergraduate or MPhil) or PHD. You can copy the files to your "My Documents" folder on your desktop.

When you are finished copying files, you can logout in the usual way.

If you have any problems with these instructions, please contact it@econ.cam.ac.uk for help
