There may be times when you wish to share personal files with other people, but you only want them to have access to the file for a limited amount of time or a limited number of views. The best way to do this is to create a public link to the file via the web version of your network drives. In doing this, you can protect the file with a password that you only give out to the people you wish to view the file. You can also restrict it to a certain number of views, to make sure the file cannot be opened by anyone other than those you specify.
NOTE: Please keep in mind that once your file is opened, you have no control over people making copies of the content in those files and sharing as they choose!
The first step in publicly sharing personal files is to access that file from the web, whether you are at home or on campus. Students, faculty, and staff can securely access their H: drives or the W: Drive from any web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.
Type in your UWEC username and password as you would when logging into a campus computer.
The files and folders on your HomeDrive (H:) drive appear, as well as those on the DeptDir (W:) and Projects drives.
