MyDocs Overview

MyDocs provides 500MB of individualized file storage to every University of Arkansas student, faculty and staff member. You can use MyDocs to access files from your computer or the Documents folder in a Tech Spot computer lab.

Accessing MyDocs in the GACLs

When logged into a Windows computer in a Tech Spot lab, anything you save to Documents will be automatically saved to your MyDocs online file storage.

When logged into a Mac in a lab, you can map a drive to access MyDocs using the address "smb://mydocs.uark.edu/mydocs/yourUARKusername/Documents," replacing "yourUARKusername" with your own UARK username. Use the instructions in the Mapping a Drive Tech Article.

Accessing MyDocs on Your Computer

Use the instructions in the Mapping a Drive Tech Article to connect to MyDocs from off campus or on home computers. Off-campus users may need to connect using VPN at vpn.uark.edu before mapping a drive to the campus network. The address for mapping a drive to MyDocs from your computer is:

  • Windows: \\mydocs.uark.edu\mydocs\yourUARKusername\Documents
  • Mac: smb://mydocs.uark.edu/mydocs/yourUARKusername/Documents

(Replace "yourUARKusername" with your own UARK username.)

Accessing MyDocs in a Web Browser

You can access and manage your MyDocs files in a web browser using webDocs. Log in with your UARK username and password and select MyDocs from the menu on the left.

Saving a File to MyDocs

  1. If you have created folders in MyDocs, navigate to the folder where you want to save the file.
  2. Click Browse to the right of the File 1 field located below the file listing.
  3. Find and select the desired file. Click Open.
  4. A new file field (File 2) with another Browse button will appear. To upload more than one file, use this second file field.
  5. To finish uploading the file(s), click Upload File(s).

Tips

  • Use the folder path (e.g., [My Docs]/Folder/subFolder) at the top to navigate back through the folders.
  • Check the box to the left of the file to use actions from the drop-down menu at the top of the file listing, including copy, cut, delete and rename.
