How do I connect to the file server?

Webfile.nsd.org - Login from anywhere!

Webfile is a web-based service that allows you to connect to your file server folders from anywhere on the Internet. The connection is encrypted so your password and file contents are all protected while traveling across public Internet connections. Staff can use it to transfer files to work from a home computer or retrieve a file from the file server to work on at home. Open any web browser, such as Google Chrome, Safari or Firefox, and enter the URL http://webfile.nsd.org/ and then log in with your district username and password to connect to your file server folders. 

When you first log in, you will see a number of folders on the left. The list will include the folders in your Home Drive folder (Desktop, Documents, Public, Temporary) as well as any other sharepoints to which you have access, which generally includes Schools (for your school office folder). Click on a folder to see the files and folders inside of it. To work with a file you will select the file and download it to your computer. Once you have edited it, you will then need to upload it to the file server again, overwriting the old copy that is still there. Be sure to leave the window open long enough for the upload to complete or you may lose your file!

NOTE: The Webfile service cannot access files on your district computer - only files on the file server. If you frequently need to work on files at home, you should always save your files to the file server instead of to your local computer.


Google Docs - NOT ON THE FILE SERVER

Please be aware that files in Google Docs (Google Drive, Google Apps) are NOT part of our file server. You cannot get to them with MyServerFolder or Webfile. They are not backed up on the district network, either. Please see KB article 601 for information on using Google Docs with your district account.
