- We are currently (as of Fall 2016) moving away from Middfiles home folders towards OneDrive and Google Drive. There is also Network storage for specialized software applications available. See go/cloud for more about this project, or go/onedrivehelp for technical help and instructions.
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. Also, any files saved on Middfiles are easily accessible from any public computer on campus, so you can print more conveniently.
All students, faculty, and staff are allocated personal space on the server (look for your username in the folder called home) and can have their quota increased on request. Middfiles also is the home of classes folders, where students and faculty can share files with each other. More info is available about the contents and structure of Middfiles.
To connect to Middfiles from the Middlebury campus, follow the instructions appropriate to your operating system:
If you're off-campus, you'll need to use one of our options for off-campus access.
