Access your SacFiles (U: Drive) from Anywhere, Anytime
Need to polish up a Word document at home for a class or meeting the next day? Just open the file using a web browser and then download back to your campus network storage when you're done. Traveling out of town and forgot to bring all the files you needed? No problem; just open them on the web. Faculty, Staff, and Students are allocated space on the SacFiles server to store personal files and personal Web pages, which can be helpful when you need to access a file from multiple locations.

- Your files are automatically backed up on campus-wide servers.
- Your files are highly secure from compromise behind our Firewalls and other security measures.
- You do not need to use a clunky VPN client or remote control process.
- It's completely free.
