FTP provides access to the files on your personal H: and I: drives and other Argonet drives. UWF supports two FTP options:
MyUWF Web Browser FTP requires Windows and the Internet Explorer web browser.
Opening Your H: and I: Drives
Transferring and Editing Files
Files cannot be edited and saved directly within your H: and I: drives. To edit a file, drag and drop (or copy and paste) the file from your H: or I: drive to a local folder on your computer. After your edits are complete, move the file back to your H: or I: drive.
Two free Secure FTP software packages are supported by the ITS Help Desk: SecureFTP and FileZilla. SecureFTP is a simpler program that is preferred by most users at UWF. However, FileZilla is also available for those who need more advanced features (e.g. CIS students).
