USB storage on CSE Lab Computers

USB Storage Devices in the Labs

USB storage devices - popularly known as USB keys, thumb drives and memory sticks - can be used on any lab workstation that has a USB port on the front of the case or on Apple workstations where the USB ports are easy to reach.

Using USB devices

The old "priv usb" system is no longer active. Please use the normal desktop file manager to mount and unmount USB devices.

Minimal Window Managers

If you use a light window manager, such as Fluxbox, you can run Gnome Disk Utility (a.k.a. palimpsest) to mount, unmount, partition and format personal storage devices. Select the option "Storage Devices" on the desktop menu to run this program.
