Ask your Manager, or Supervisor, for an external drive and have your Security Analyst allow you to use a USB port to attach the drive? (I assume your USB ports are secured as well.) This is not the best method as you could lose everything with a simple drive error. Or, even better, ask your Manager, or Supervisor, for a location on the network to install and save your project files in which you can be given read and write permission and which is also backed up (nightly or weekly). If your Manager, or Supervisor, cannot give you the tools to do your job, then…
Just a note that if your Manager allows you to have a network drive location, you can occasionally get network glitches that may look like test failures (with messages about objects being null) but then will continue on again like nothing happened.
If you are given the external drive, you may be prevented from starting KS (because of the USB connection) if the Security people change their rules (or from updates). You will have to remind them about your external drive and have them fix their rule for you.
Edit: I don’t have the option but perhaps even a “cloud” install. ???
