How do I access my U-M cloud storage accounts from a CAEN lab computer? What is Kumo?
Kumo (originally developed by Indiana University) is a service available on all CAEN Windows computers that allows you to map your U-M cloud-based storage services (e.g. Google Drive or Dropbox) as network drives.
To start using the service, you must first authorize your U-M cloud storage accounts to be mounted as network drives on CAEN Windows computers:
If you do not see this prompt and you have not already authorized your account(s), simply go to the website kumo.it.umich.edu and sign in with your U-M uniqname and UMICH password. You can then authorize your account to access any or all of the available cloud storage services. You only need to authorize once; all subsequent logins to CAEN Windows computers will automatically have access:
After authorizing, you should see your U-M cloud storage options appear as network drives each time you sign into a CAEN Windows computer:
Using Kumo is preferred over installing "sync" clients or using a web browser, which can utilize much more network resources.
