Unlike other cloud storage services SURFdrive complies with Dutch legislation and the Framework of Legal Standards for Cloud Services in Higher Education.
All data is securely stored within the Netherlands and SURF does not share information with third parties.
Save and share
All users get 100 GB data storage capacity. It is possible to share your files with other SURFdrive users, but also - by generating a link - with someone who doesn't have access to SURFdrive. Sharing of files can only be done through the web browser.
A link to a file or folder can be protected by a password. Furthermore, you can set an expiration date: after this date your shared files will be unavailable to others.
Use the 'SURFdrive sync client' to keep your files on SURFdrive in sync with a folder on your computer. How to install this sync client is described on the information page by ICT Services (only in Dutch).
