How do I access my U-M cloud storage accounts from a CAEN lab computer? What is Kumo?


Kumo (originally developed by Indiana University) is a service available on all CAEN Windows computers that allows you to map your U-M cloud-based storage services (e.g. Google Drive or Dropbox) as network drives.

To start using the service, you must first authorize your U-M cloud storage accounts to be mounted as network drives on CAEN Windows computers:

Setup your storage pop-up

If you do not see this prompt and you have not already authorized your account(s), simply go to the website and sign in with your U-M uniqname and UMICH password. You can then authorize your account to access any or all of the available cloud storage services. You only need to authorize once; all subsequent logins to CAEN Windows computers will automatically have access:

Connecting your files... pop-up

After authorizing, you should see your U-M cloud storage options appear as network drives each time you sign into a CAEN Windows computer:

Save locations on computer

Using Kumo is preferred over installing "sync" clients or using a web browser, which can utilize much more network resources.

Further information about using Kumo at U-M can be found on the ITS Configuring Kumo page. Questions or problems with using Kumo can be directed to the CAEN Help Desk.
