Are you using a personal Windows PC?
- Unfortunately, it is not possible to mount Samba shares directly on a personal Windows computer. As an alternative, you can follow the instructions below to download from Smbweb.
For most Home and Shared directories, you can perform the migration yourself by following the instructions below. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, request that ITS assist you in the migration by filling out the “Samba Migration Request” form, or by contacting the Help Desk.
If you are managing a shared directory — for example, a collection of course or department files — you will also want to read the Google Drive documentation for help with sharing folders.
If you only have access to a personal Windows computer, you won’t be able to mount Samba shares directly — but you can download your data from Smbweb. Please do not attempt to download more than 10 GB at a time from Smbweb. For more help with Smbweb refer to “Accessing file shares from a web browser with Smbweb”.
Depending on your browser you may also be able to open the file by clicking it in the Downloads bar at the bottom of the browser window.
See the Google Drive documentation for help uploading your data to Google Drive.
