From now on up to 250 gigabytes of storage is available on SURFdrive!
Since our former blog about the introduction of SURFdrive, the personal cloud storage service for UvA employees, a lot of improvements have been made. We have summed up the most important changes.
Work on documents online
If you do not have a text processor, spreadsheet program or presentation program on your computer or if you do not wish to synchronise local files, you can edit your documents using your webbrowser. Simply go to www.surfdrive.nl, log in and click on a file to edit it directly in your browser.
Work in one document at the same time
If you share a file with other SURFdrive users (see the tutorials and frequently asked questions for an explanation), you can all open and edit the file simultaneously.
Note: this only works if you edit the files via the website not if you simply share a link.
All common browsers support the new feature. You can edit the following file formats online and share with others at the same time:
- Text documents in .docx, .doc and .odt formats.
- Spreadsheets in .xlsx, .xls and .ods formats.
- Presentations in .pptx, .ppt and .odp formats.
Safe storage and information
SURFdrive complies with all Dutch and European privacy legislation. The data are stored safely in the Netherlands and are never made available to third parties. For questions or more information check the FAQ.
