Erasmus University Rotterdam provides its faculty and staff with a safe, easy and secure way to exchange data with EUR colleagues as well as with colleagues from other universities. This service, SURFdrive, meets the needs of secure exchange of research data. Always use a cloud service (like SURFdrive) recognised by EUR – rather than public ones such as Dropbox.You control which data you share with whom and for how long.
There are various ways of logging into SURFdrive:
You can also download and install the SURFdrive client (Windows, Linux, OS X, iOS and Android) on your computer, tablet and smartphone. Now you can easily drag and drop files to folders on your computer or device locally and, provided you have access to wifi, the files and folders will sync with the SURFdrive cloud, ensuring you have access to all your files from your computer and devices.
If you want to share folders or files with a colleague, there are two ways to do so. Either she or he is faculty or staff at a Dutch University or HBO institution, and has access to SURFdrive in a way similar to you. She or he will use their institution’s account to logon. If this is not the case, you can share your folders/files with your colleague, based on her/his (business) email address. Here’s the manual for both ways:
