Free, Secure Online Storage with ECU

ITCS offers two options for online file storage.


Every student, faculty and staff has a personal 40GB Piratedrive folder to store important files such as class assignments, meeting minutes or research proposals. With password-protection, security, daily backup and availability on- or off-campus, some users opt to save all their work files to their Piratedrive folder rather than a work or personal computer.

Departments can request a Piratedrive folder (capacity 50GB) to store departmental information. For detailed information, visit the Piratedrive pages.

All activities using Piratedrive must conform to the ECU Academic Computer Use Policy and the University Student and Employee Computer Use Policy.

Please Note: Users should not store sensitive ECU information with any non-ECU cloud storage service. Read these security considerations to learn why.
