I hadn’t either, but once I did, my life was changed forever! M+Box is a storage space that allows you to store as many files as you’d like. The size of the files does not matter, and you can share them with anyone you want. If you do decide to share them, you get to choose whether or not the person you are sharing the file with is authorized to edit the file, or only view it.
The coolest part about M+Box is the fact that you can access it on any computer! No matter where you are, as long as you have access to a computer (and Internet) you can access your documents! Cool, right? All it takes is a few short steps, and you’ll be on your way!
Step 1: Open your Internet Browser
Step 2: Type “m+box umich” into the search box
Step 3: Click the link that reads “M+Box- University of Michigan”
Step 4: Click the option on the left side of the page that reads “Log In to M+Box”:
Step 5: Type in your login credentials
Step 6: Click on your name in the upper right hand corner
Step 7: Click on the “Box Sync” option to download it to your computer
Step 8: Start storing files!
By downloading BoxSync on your computer, you do not have to visit the Box.com website every time you would like to save a file. When you save your file in BoxSync, the file is automatically saved on the website as well.
Note: You must have Internet access for this to work; if you are not connected and connect later, the file will still sync.
