Other options for file sharing

If you plan to share sensitive data, need a complex folder structure or intend to share many files, a shared drive might be better for you. You can access the shared drive online from any location via a web browser, Windows Explorer or Mac Finder. Also, you can share files securely with people outside Warwick. See the MyFiles service for more details.

To work on shared documents collaboratively with others at Warwick, OneDrive for Business (part of Microsoft Office 365) is ideal. You can work on documents, spreadsheets and presentations with others simultaneously, and track the version history of edited files.
