Andrew File System (AFS)

The Andrew File System (AFS) is a central file storage, sharing, and retrieval system for U-M faculty, staff and students. Also known as Institutional File System (IFS), AFS lets you access your documents and files from different computers at different locations.

ITS makes 10GB of free online storage space available to all eligible U-M individuals as part of their Standard Computing Services. You can transfer files to/from this space easily over the web with MFile, and the space is regularly backed up and secure.

More details are available in the AFS Overview and on the Michigan IT Services Portal.

More Than Personal

Group AFS is the same as personal AFS, but is accessible by a configurable group of people.
