How to Access Files from the Virtual Lab

There are multiple methods you can use to access files in the Virtual Lab.

Accessing Cloud Storage Using Box

To access files from your Box account, follow the Cloud Storage Integration instructions. Then, simply open your files from the I: drive within the application.

Accessing Network Storage (N: and S: drives)

You can request to have your account provisioned for network storage. Once provisioned, any CSBS-managed computer you log into will have the drive letter N: where files can be stored and accessed.
