During a research project, you will need to store your digital research data so it is secure and backed up regularly, but can also be accessed by those authorised to do so.

Research storage on the University filestore (X: drive) is recommended for storing master copies of research data. Postgraduate students should request research storage through their supervisor. The University Google drive can be useful for storing data that needs to be shared outside the University. However, Google Drive should not be used for storing sensitive research data. You can find more information in our data storage guidance.
