Sharing Files Using SURFdrive

SURFdrive enables you to share files and directories by using the web browser. Open https://surfdrive.surf.nl/files and search for the file or directory you want to share. Move your cursor over the file or directory, so that a button showing ‘Share’ appears on the right. Once you have clicked this button, you can search for the users you want to share your file or directory with. The standard setting is that other users can only read the file or directory and not edit or delete it, or share it with others. If you want to allow other users to work in your file or directory, click the small triangle next to ‘Allow edit’. You can use this option to choose what individual users may do with your files or directories.

Costs
Individual members of staff may use SURFdrive free of charge.

Sharing Files Using a Network Drive

If you want to share files with your direct colleagues, use the ‘public’ group directories (P-drive), which can be shared between selected groups of users. Every faculty and unit has its own P-drive and decides who will have access. The IT contact person will create or delete directories and allocate rights.

Costs
Individual members of staff may use the P-drive free of charge.
