Access files at home


There are several ways staff and students can access their files from home - 



We recommend everyone at Sussex uses Microsoft OneDrive as their primary form of saving and accessing files. 

To help you get started, follow our guidance below.

How to install OneDrive

Staff also have the option of using the Windows Remote service to access their files from home. 

This webpage has set up instructions for Windows Remote.



If OneDrive is not suitable then you can set up your N:Drive using the following instructions -
