Changes to My Files Channel
Over the past weekend, the university upgraded the Cabinet file storage system used by faculty and staff to a new, easier-to-use service. At the same time, we discontinued the Folder file storage service previously used by students and merged that service with Cabinet. Everyone on campus will now have access to the same personal file storage service, accessible through the My Files channel in PAWS.
- One personal file storage system for everyone at the U of S
- Aging hardware replaced with newer, faster equipment
- Disk quotas now start at 2GB and larger quotas can be requested by contacting your local IT support staff or the ITS Help Desk
- New, easier-to-use My Files interface in PAWS
- Microsoft Windows users can restore deleted files or folders using the ‘Previous Versions’ tab built into the Windows Explorer on their desktop (non-Windows users will be provided with a restore console that they can connect to remotely to restore files and folders)
- Service available from off campus, using software that is built into Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh desktops
Students will now see a Cabinet link in the My Files channel (still located on their Home tabs). Faculty and staff will also find the new link on their existing My Files channel located on their Admin Services tabs. You can read more about the new, improved Cabinet file storage service on the ITS website, or, if you need more help, can contact the ITS Help Desk.
