Work smarter with Box Drive for UAB Box

Box Drive is a simple way to work with all of your files — even billions of files — right from your desktop — without taking up much hard drive space.

Box Drive is part of UAB Box, available to campus faculty and staff at UAB.

Box Drive integrates with Windows File Explorer and Mac Finder, so working with files in Box Drive feels like working with files in a network drive — with added features such as external collaboration, search and version control.

When Box Drive is installed, you open your Windows Explorer or Mac Finder to find every file you need, edit as you would any local file and save it automatically to the cloud.

Among the features of Box Drive:

  • Access all files: all of your files stored in Box right from your desktop.
  • Increased security: Files are no longer stored on your hard drive, reducing the risk of data loss if your device is lost or stolen.
  • Files shared with you: Any files shared with you, including read-only, will automatically appear in Drive.
  • Save every version: Automatically retain version of files every time you click “save” and never have to worry about losing work.
