File Storage: How to Request an Increase of Network Drive Space


How do I request an increase in my network drive space?


To request additional network drive space:

  1. Make sure you have cleaned the drive for redundant or irrelevant files and data before requesting more storage.
  2. Submit a service request to the Service Desk. 
  3. The Service Desk will generate a work order to increase your drive space.
    • Note: Additional space will be allotted in an amount equal to the original allocation. For example, 1 gb drive space will be increased by 1 gb to a total of 2 gb.
  4. You can check the status of your work order in TDX under Services in the top red menu bar. 
    • Once in Services, click Ticket Requests in the gray menu bar.
    • Under Status Class, check Select All and then click Search. This will generate all work tickets you have submitted.
    • You can refine your search by checking other options under Status Class (i.e In Progress, Completed)
