On Windows, you will map a drive to connect to either your group or individual storage space. Follow the instructions below.
If you're off-campus or on UCB Wireless, connect with CU-Boulder's VPN first.
In the Folder text field, enter the server address that you received from OIT when your account was provisioned, or ask the group admin in your department for the address.
The address will be structured like the following: \\server.colorado.edu\sharename\
Note: The 'server' and 'sharename' you need in order to connect were provided to you by OIT.
A window will open to enter your credentials.
In the User name: text field enter ad\Identikey. For example, ad\buffalor.
In the Password: text field enter your Identikey password.
Click on the OK button.
You can redirect the location of a folder on your computer to a folder in your storage space, thus making it synchronized. If you do decide to do this, be very cautious not to redirect files that you don't want to keep in your storage space that could potentially bump your space into the next storage limit level. For example, if you want to redirect My Documents, be aware that it could redirect My Music, My Pictures, and my Movies as well. For help with redirection, contact the IT Service Center (303-735-4357, 5-HELP from an on-campus phone, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org).Back to top
