The Linux and Windows file systems are separate.

There is very limited space for these directories and there is no method for backing them up.


It is recommended that you make your own backup copies on a USB flash drive.

You can transfer files between the systems using the ssh program.

Home Directory:

  • Your home directory should be in "/home/<username>"
  • If you are lost in an uknown path try using this command. It will let you know where you are: 
prompt# pwd
  • To get back to your home directory use: 
prompt# cd
  • To go to the left( or upper) directory use: 
prompt# cd ..

For more useful commands print your own copy of our new LINUX COMMAND REFRENCE sheet. especially made for linux users in B361

Home Directory:

  • Z:\  is your home directory, it provides 200MB of space. 
  • All your files should be saved to your home directory on the Z: drive.
  • This can be found by double clicking the My Computer icon found in the start menu.
  • If you have saved files to My Documents or any place other than the Z: drive,  they are in danger of being lost (deleted).
