Middfiles is the college's primary file server. This is where you should save all your important files, because the servers are backed up regularly. Using Middfiles can save you from disaster if your computer crashes or freezes; even if you accidentally delete a file, you can usually restore your data.

All students, faculty, and staff are allocated personal space on the server and can have their quota increased on request.
