< All Topics

This guide will be chaning soon as we make some changes and upgrades to our Seafile system. Please check back soon.

We have a cloud storage platform for all members of the IPPP, the platform will work on most Operating Systems and works similar to dropbox.

Users get a default allocation of 15GB (Soon to be 30GB) with a limited availability to expand, by default there is a 30 day file history to self recover from and we back the system up daily in case of a disaster.

Request

Members do not automatically get access to seafile, it must be specifically requested.

Just send us an email requesting a Seafile account.

Download

The latest client should already be available on the IPPP Desktops.
