Decreasing Current Used Space

The easiest way for you to free up space on your S drive, is to delete any old, irrelevant files that you are no longer needing. You can do this by simply deleting the files directly from your S drive.

Alternate Storage Locations

You can also use other storage locations to store your files. If the files are work related then the files can be saved to the T: drive.  Keep in mind that who ever has access to those same folders, will have access to these files. 

Files can also be saved to OneDrive. OneDrive offers1 TB of storage with the SHSU Office 365 account that all faculty, staff and students have.

You can also you external devices to store data. Just plug the external drive into the computer and save/move the files to the corresponding drive under My Computer.
