How can I move files on the X: drive

When you move a file or folder from one section of the Shared Departmental X: drive to another location you will need to copy and paste and delete the original.

Use Copy and Paste not Cut and Paste or drag and drop.

    This will ensure that the folders and files gain the same access rights as the Level 2 folder above. If you move the file it may keep the access permissions of the original folder meaning that some staff may not be able to access it.

    1. Copy the folders or files you want to move
    2. Find the location of where you want to move the folders or files
    3. Paste the folders or files in the new location
    4. Delete the folders or files from the original location
