U: Drive (Xythos)

Xythos is Being Discontinued

 Since the successful launch of our new student email server in 2010 and the ease-of-use of the Live@edu SkyDrive, we will be discontinuing use of the old Xythos system (PCLAB U: drive).  Now that Live@edu includes 7GB of SkyDrive storage, as well as 10GB of email storage, Xythos has become obsolete, while maintenance costs continue to increase.  By end of the summer Xythos will be removed from all labs.

The web interface to Xythos, http://files.tntech.edu/, will continue to be available UNTIL THE END OF FALL SEMESTER to give you time to move any files you wish to keep to another storage location.  After that time there will be no access to Xythos. 

TTU's U: Drive (Centralized File Storage for Users) - Powered by Xythos

The U: Drive gives you several options for accessing your files as well as a few additional features.

Getting Started in the PC Labs (Windows)

Now you can access any of these files from home via the web interface.

If you see the Window shown below with the message in the form of a file: "DO NOT PUT FILES HERE", the Xythos Drive was NOT able to load due to network or other difficulties.
