Departmental File Services provide administrative and academic departments with a location in which files can be stored, backed up, and shared across the department. Typical quotas are approximately 30GB per department; the service is not intended for the storage of large quantities of research data. The files can be accessed by mapping the drive on your computer (Windows Explorer on PC or Finder on a Mac), or by visiting webfiles.brown.edu in a web browser.
The departmental computing representative for your department should contact the CIS Help Desk to request a consultation prior to set up of a departmental share.
To add someone to an existing share, contact your departmental computing representative, who can either make the change or create a ticket for the Help Desk.
