ARCHIVED: At IU, what is RFSWeb and how do I use it?

Note:
The Indiana University Research File System (RFS) will be decommissioned the week of January 2, 2017. Most RFS accounts (with few exceptions) are now read-only. For details, see ARCHIVED: About the retirement of the Research File System at IU.

RFSWeb is the web interface to the Research File System (RFS) at Indiana University. To use it, your web browser must support secure connections via the SSL protocol.

To sort items by Name, Size, or Modified, click the appropriate column heading.

Each folder and file is a link. Click the link to go directly to that folder or file. To return to the previous level, click your browser's Back button. To go up one level, at the top of the directory listing, click Up one level.

Note:

When you click a filename, the appropriate application for that file type may launch if your browser and operating system understand the file type. For example, if you using Internet Explorer, clicking a Microsoft Word file may launch Word inside your browser.

Even though a file may open automatically with the appropriate application (e.g., Word), saving any changes you make to it will not communicate the changes back to the RFS.

To download a file, right-click its filename (on a Mac, Ctrl-click), select an option to save the file (the exact text of the options will depend on your web browser, choose a location to save the file, and then click the appropriate button to save the file to disk.
