OneDrive allows users to sync files and later access them from a web browser or mobile device. Users can share files publicly or with their contacts.

Google Workspace for Education

Clemson users can enjoy unlimited data storage integrated with Clemson Google Workspace for Education. Google Workspace includes Drive, Google's cloud storage solution that features several cloud applications including Google Documents, Google Spreadsheets, and Google Presentations. To get to it, log in to and click on Drive in the applications bar. Additionally, users can click the link on the left side of the page to install Google Drive on their own computer.  If they do this, a folder will be placed in their computer's documents for their Google Drive files.  They may drag and drop files to or from their Google Drive folder to sync files to their Google Workspace account.  

Workstation Backup (CrashPlan)

  CCIT’s Office of Information Security has purchased CrashPlan, as a backup and security solution to ensure your day of hard work is never lost or compromised. Crashplan runs automatically, and silently, in the background; continuously protecting the data created and stored on desktops, laptops, and some mobile devices. With Code42, you are able to retrieve lost or deleted files with the click of a button from anywhere, at any time. Licenses will be sold in a one license-to-four device format, meaning that you are able to install the CrashPlan client on up to four devices. The cost of a license will be $82 annually. The license year will run from July 1 to June 30. The e-commerce site to purchase your license(s) is up and accepting purchases.   At this time, no protected health data can be backed up by this service.
