How do I find out what physical disk holds my files?

Since 2011, files saved in your home directory (or N:drive), including folders such as "Documents", are held in a specialised file storage system based on Open Storage. The system is designed to make your files accessible from all of the Macs and PCs on the campus as well as giving access when you're away from the campus.

The system is backed up in real time with both versions of your files held in different physical locations.
