Changes in how some access the “Y” Drive
On Tuesday June 30 we will change the way some people access the BUMC file server (the “Y” drive). If you currently access the “Y” drive using the path that begins with \\bumc.bu.edu\bumc\ on a PC or smb://bumc.bu.edu/bumc/ on a MAC, you will need to correct the way you connect to the server. You will now want to connect using \\filesrvs.bumc.bu.edu\bumc on PC or smb://filesrvs.bumc.bu.edu/bumc on a MAC. Please visit our mapping the Y drive page for detailed instructions.
We are making this change to make it easier for some to access the BUMC website. Currently to access the website you need to type in www.bumc.bu.edu into the address bar, after the change is in place, the www won’t be needed and simply using bumc.bu.edu will work.
