MySpace: Your Legal File-Sharing Option

Trying to find a way to legally share files with your friends? Is your file too big for e-mail and is Instant Messenger not doing what you had hoped? Luckily, you now have a simple way to share class-related files with all your friends!

You'll be able to share files with friends and classmates with the use of MySpace, a file-storage tool within MyUCDavis. MySpace provides up to 100 MB of storage space for your files so you can access them from any computer with an Internet connection. You can upload any type of file, including Word documents, graphics, PowerPoint presentations, and much more. What's more, the files and folders on MySpace are completely secure.

You can create public and private folders, add friends and grant them as little or as much access as you want, move files, make copies, and even download directly to your computer's hard drive or view files in your browser.

You can also create groups. This feature is perfect for group projects; simply add members to your group to share files with all the group members. No more hassling friends on the phone about whether they have finished their part of the project yet, because you can easily view it online or download it to your desktop.

To find MySpace, log into MyUCDavis, click the "My Tools" tab and then "MySpace." Don't wait until the eighth-week crunch; start using MySpace today!
