Managing Your UBfs Space

UBfs file storage can be accessed from different platforms in different ways.

Viewing How Your UBfs Space Is Organized

Your UBfs space is organized into three directories:

  • Myfiles: for individual files of faculty, student and staff
  • Collaboration (Collab): for sharable files by departments and schools
  • Research: for active, institutionally sponsored research activity by faculty and staff for defined periods of time

Myfiles Space

Myfiles space is automatically created as part of your UBIT account. It includes:

  • Personal web page if you choose (published at www.buffalo.edu)
  • UBUnix home directory (automatically created)
