Configuring Kumo


Files stored to U-M Box and U-M Google Drive will be available on Campus Computing Sites Windows computers and Virtual Sites as network drives using Kumo software. This will allow files in U-M Box and U-M Google Drive to be used with applications on Campus Computing Sites computers—without downloading and uploading a new version after editing. Setting up Kumo is easy; you simply authorize your cloud storage accounts (U-M Box & U-M Google Drive), and they’ll show up as a network drive in any AppsAnywhere session. You only need to authorize once. The next time you sign into AppsAnywhere you will see those cloud storage options appear as network drives under the "This PC" icon.

Note When using AppsAnywhere, this one-time setup prompt will continue to appear until you’ve authorized your cloud storage.
