Remotely Accessing Your Home Folders

When you are logged into a computer at the U of M you are given your own personal "home" folder for you to save files in. 

On Windows you may recognize this folder as your "H:\drive", or on unix this folder is plainly known as your "home directory".

Your home folders can be accessed over the Internet in a variety of ways. See the table below for information:

System Method
Active Directory

•   CIFS (Mac Instructions)

Office 365

•   OneDrive (Move files to OneDrive)

UNIX

•   FTP
•   AFP (Mac only)
•   CIFS
•   Windows Networking (PC)

 

Which Should I use?
FTP
Better than netstorage for users transfering multiple file regularly, however requires an FTP Client such as FillZilla.
AFP (mac)
Easily access your UNIX home folder as if it were a drive on your computer.
Samba (pc)
Access your UNIX home folder or Novell network drives as if it were drives on your computer using CIFS (Windows Networking)
