Remote file access services

Accessing files remotely

Remote file access services provide simple, internet-based access to files stored on RMIT file servers via a standard web browser.

Files can be copied and moved between the internet-based computer and the RMIT network. Files can also be renamed, deleted, read and modified on the RMIT file servers.

Access to remote file access services is available seven days a week but is subject to RMIT maintenance schedules and security policies.

As part of file storage upgrades, shared drives are being migrated. If you receive an email (for staff) or myRMIT announcement (for students) stating that a shared drive has been migrated, you can remotely access that shared drive using the myDrive system.

For shared drives that have been migrated, you can remotely access that shared drive using the myDrive system.

For shared drives that have not yet been migrated, you can continue to remotely access those shared drives using Netstorage.

To access all other drives, you must continue to use NetStorage.

Remote file access resources:

  • Access myDrive (Student and staff home directories and migrated shared drives)
  • Access NetStorage (All other shared drives and read-only staff home directories)
