WorkSpaces: Pydio Web Client

The WorkSpaces system provides you with research data storage on the UPEI secure server, which is housed in the Data Centre on campus. It is intended only for use with research data - please check with Library or ITSS staff if you have other requirements. Everyone automatically has a WorkSpaces account, as it is created the first time you login. You must login using this process before you can use the PydioSync.

You will encounter both terms: WorkSpaces and Pydio. These refer to the same backend systems that provide you with a secure storage service.

You can access a rich set of tutorials on using WorkSpaces by clicking on the Watch Our Tutorials link on the main page immediately after you login to WorkSpaces.

Logging In

To access your WorkSpaces you need to first ensure you are logged into https://data.upei.ca/ .

  • navigate to https://data.upei.ca
  • log in with your UPEI username and password (the same one you use to access your email)
  • once logged in select WorkSpaces from the menu, then Go to your WorkSpace

 

 

Your WorkSpace

Once logged in you are able access your WorkSpaces and FIles and those that are shared with you. If you have also installed the PydioSync tool the Folders on your local drive will have an equivalent Project/Folder in the WorkSpaces environment, containing the files you have stored in that location.

If you choose not to use the PydioSync tool you can create folders and upload files using just the web client.
