Everything you need to know about locating and working with your shared drives in AppsAnywhere.

Where do I find my shared drives?

Departmental shared drives have been migrated to the Institutional File Store (IFS) service and as a result the drive mappings are different when you are using AppsAnywhere virtual desktops.


Retirement of the UAS M drive – the M drive is not available in AppsAnywhere

The M: drive (i.e. the current home drive for ACN/UAS users) is being retired and will not be available in the UMD Windows virtual desktop in AppsAnywhere. You must switch to using your personal OneDrive instead of the M: drive. See: Retirement of the UAS M drive for instructions about how to do this.
