Short link for this page: utwente.nl/webdrive.
WebDrive makes it possible to reach your UT documents while you are working at home and/or on your mobile device.
You can reach your data by using Finder, Windows Explorer or a mobile device with WebDAV app (e.g. GoodReader, WebDAV Navigator).
It is not possible to copy big files, like CDs or big programs; maximum file size is 50 MB. If you want to upgrade this can be done through http://support2.microsoft.com/kb/2668751 using the MS Fix-it or by changing the registry youself and restart the webclient-service.
To reach your data, you use a WebDAV protocol. There are several WebDAV clients for different platforms (Apple Mac OS, iOS, Microsoft Windows and Ubuntu Linux). Because the data is transported via internet, you can reach your data nearly everywhere. You don’t need VPN connection and your data is secured by HTTPS connection.
UT employees can use three directories (the M, P and U disk) to save files. In the past, it was only possible to access the home directories from a different computer using a VPN connection and with a Microsoft or Linux operating system. To make the home directories more accessible and more user friendly, LISA developed the WebDrive.
These manuals use a consistent style of writing: references to text and buttons on screens are printed in italics, information that you have to enter yourself is printed in bold.
