Accessing Your iFolders

Use this page to access all the iFolders available to you in this account. Available iFolders include those you own and those others have shared either with you or with the LDAPGroup you belong to. You can access shared iFolders through Web Access even if you have not set up the iFolder on a local computer.

Shared icon icon indicates that the iFolder is Regular.
Shared icon icon indicates that the iFolder is Encrypted.
Shared icon icon indicates that the iFolder is disabled. You cannot either access a disabled iFolder or select it for any iFolder operations.

For each iFolder, you can view the created date and the respective owner. Click the iFolder link to view the list of its folders and files in a new page.

Logging In and Logging Out

If the system connection times out when you are working in your iFolders, Web Access returns you to the login page. You can log in again to resume working without closing your browser.

Log out by clicking Logout in the upper right header area, then close your browser. Logout will redirect you to the URL that your Admin has set while configuring the setup. If you do not log out, your session remains open until your session times out, which can be a security risk.
