Oregon State University offers many different cloud storage locations: Microsoft One Drive, Google Drive, and Box.

All of your different storage locations can be managed by Kumo (OSU lab computers and desktops only). Instructions for setting up Kumo are available at http://it.engineering.oregonstate.edu/kumo

Box

http://box.oregonstate.edu/

Box offers Unlimited storage space.

Files and folders can be uploaded to Box. When uploading files and folders, they cannot be bigger than 15GB in size. From there they can be shared with collaborators.

Using Box integration with Microsoft Office and Google Web Apps, files can be created and edited within the Box browser.

After you leave the university, files can be transferred to a personal account or your OSU Box account can be changed to a free account.

  • If you are over the storage limit (5GB for a free account) when changing to a free account, Box allows you to keep all your files but you cannot edit or add more files till you are lower than the limit.
