File Storage and Sharing: Files 2.0

About Files 2.0

Files 2.0 provides individuals and departments with secure, web-based file storage, as well as sophisticated capabilities for accessing and sharing files among individuals and members of a group, including individuals outside the NYU community. Users of this service may choose to activate their accounts for "public sharing," which allows them to host a public website. (Note: In most cases, the NYU Sites service is now a better choice for creating and publishing a public website.)
