What is MavDISK?
MavDISK is a secure file storage facility and web server for the Minnesota State Mankato students, faculty, and staff. You can create your own web site within your "My_Website" folder on MavDISK. You can then instantly browse to your URL address: http://mavdisk.mnsu.edu/yourStarID from anywhere in the world. If you've always wanted to make your own web site, MavDISK is the easiest way.
- Students = 2 GB
- Faculty/staff = 16 GB
2GB Storage plus your own personal web site!
Save your notes, research, assignments and presentations to MavDISK where they'll be safe, backed up, and available to you anywhere in the world where you have an Internet connection. Memory sticks can get lost, hard drives can crash, laptops can be stolen, but your important files can be safe and available on MavDISK. Choose the option that works best for you.
