Once you have been registered in Aalborg University’s IT systems, your personal document area will be created on the server. This is where you can store your data.
If you are using one of our pre-installed Windows computers, you can find your document area under "Libraries" and then "Documents".
If you are using your own Windows computer, a Mac computer or the Linux OS, you need to manually connect to your document area.
WHY SAVE FILES ON THE SERVER?
As soon as you store your files on the server, we will backup your documents.
You will gain access to your own files on all your devices, and you can access these files anywhere via VPN.
If you are using a pre-installed Windows computer, your documents are automatically synchronised; this means that you can always find an updated version of your files on your hard drive and on the server.
SHARE YOUR FILES
If several users need to work on the same files, you can use a group folder, called a fileshare. If you need a fileshare, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org in which you include the desired name of your fileshare and the name (username) of the users who need access to the fileshare.
