Xythos Access Using a Mapped Drive

Note to Macintosh users: Some APPLE written applications, such as Keynote, actually consist of multiple underlying files. In order to successfully upload a file created in a program like Keynote, right-click on the file(s) and select "Make archive" or "Compress" depending on the version of Mac OS you are running. Then upload the compressed version of the file.

Getting Started from a TTU Office

To easily access the files storage, you will want to add a network place in Windows.

FIRST TIME ONLY (To create your user folder):



Creating a Network Place in Windows XP


Mapping a Network Drive in Windows Vista

TIP: If you attempt to edit files directly in the network window, you may be UNABLE to do so, even if the software program is on your computer. Available Fall 2008, faculty may wish to purchase the Xythos client ($22) driver (ITS Purchases) to allow you to do this. However, MS Office files WILL be editable in the network window.
