HKUST iStore Service provides a storage space for our users to store their files on our iStore server. The server supports the internet WebDAV standard, a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol, which allows users to edit and manage files on remote web server in a convenient way.
After the iStore service is enabled with your ITSC Network Account, you can connect to the iStore server as a web folder and perform operations like "drag-n-drop", "copy-n-paste", etc. if you are using the Windows XP. Of course, the HKUST iStore Service cannot replace your local PC harddisk or even your external storage devices if you are looking for a large storage space or a fast access speed. However, it is most useful in situation like:
- Using as a temporary storage of working files.
- Managing your files in office or at home.
- Storing email attachments in iStore server instead of occupying your mailboxes space.
- Windows XP
- Other OS supports WebDAV like Windows 2000, Mac OS X, etc.
Backup of your files
Please remember to make backup copies of all files you stored on the server!
