Overview

Please note: As of June 1, 2017, Hawk Drive personal storage has been discontinued. KU students, faculty and staff now have 1TB of online file storage through OneDrive for Business in KU's myCommunity online collaboration space. Please contact your IT Support Staff or the IT Customer Service Center (itcsc@ku.edu or 785-864-8080) with any questions or concerns regarding Hawk Drive and online storage.​


What is Hawk Drive? 
​Hawk Drive is a web-based file storage system that was available to KU students, faculty and staff. Hawk Drive provided a secure, web-based location for KU faculty, staff and student employees to share files, manage file portals, store and publish their content, collaborate on research projects and reduce administrative costs. Personal online storage is now provided through OneDrive for Business and group online storage is provided through project/team sites in myCommunity.

Hawk Drive & Web Folder (WebDAV) capabilities

WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is an Internet (HTTP) protocol that allows individuals to edit and manage files on a remote server that has this protocol enabled. Hawk Drive is WebDAV enabled. This means that data stored in Hawk Drive can be managed within a webDAV enabled application or operating system. Microsoft Office, for example, is WebDAV enabled, as are current Windows, Macinstosh and Linux operating systems.

The Hawk Drive server is backed up for disaster recovery purposes only. Restoration of individual files (e.g. due to accidental deletion by the user) is not a feature of the Hawk Drive service. For this reason it is critical that account holders maintain a current and complete backup locally of all files placed within their Hawk Drive account.
