Web Files


WebFiles allows users the ability to access the H:\ and R:\ Drives from a web browser. Users can upload, download, delete, and rename the files on network drives. Additionally, any type of file that is used with a Microsoft Office program or Google Workspace application can be created and edited from within Web Files.

Accessing these network drives through mapping them to your computer while connected to the VPN is still available, this is simply just another option.
