mySCC - Managing Files and Folders


This guide contains information on working with files and folders within the mySCC system.
Note: If you are using a flash drive, insert it before you log in to mySCC.

Accessing Your H: Drive Files (network):
From the Main screen in mySCC, launch the application All Drives H, S, W.

Step 1: From within an application, choose the Open command. The system automatically defaults to “My Documents,” which displays files and folders from your H: drive (personal storage area on the SCC network).
Step 2: Browse through the folders to find the desired file, as normal.


Accessing Files Stored on Your Computer:
Although you can open, modify and save your local files using the steps below, it’s highly recommended you do these functions from the My Documents area within mySCC – that would be your H: drive (personal storage area) on the SCC network. It’s much more convenient and the system will perform better for you. See steps below for copying files up to your H: drive.

There are two methods for accessing your local data files (e.g., documents, spreadsheets, etc.) on your computer’s hard drive. Both involve finding your local computer drive (C:), which is assigned "Local Disk (C:...System Folder) in mySCC.

METHOD ONE:

Step 1: From within an application, choose the Open command.
Step 2: Click or double-click My Computer or Computer.

Granting Permissions
On Windows PCs: You receive a "Citrix Receiver - Security Warning" dialog box, asking for permission to access files on your computer. Choose Allow reading only to just view files; choose Permit all access to be able to modify files. (Checking Do not ask me again for this site will make this permission permanent.) 

On Macintosh: A "File access" message appears as the "My Computer" opens. Choose the Read Only box when you want to view local files or Read & Write box when you want to open or save a file. Check Don't ask me again box to male permission permanent.


Step 3: Note the dialog box changes to display drive letters (as in the following example from MS Word) →

Step 4: Double-click on Local Disk C on ...to open your local drive.
Step 5: Navigate to find your folder and files.

On Windows PCs: To find files in “My Documents,” double-click Users, then your user name (if applicable), then the Documents link.

Choosing “Documents” from the list at the left will take you to your H: drive on the SCC network. (Do not use the Desktop option!)

On Macintosh: Open the Desktop, Documents or other relevant location.



METHOD TWO:

Step 1: From the mySCC Application window, click the All Drives H, S, W icon.
Step 2: Click on Local Disk C: to open your local drive. Follow instructions above for granting permissions. Your CD drive is usually “(D:)” drive; a USB flash drive plugged into your computer is usually “(E:)” drive.

Note: Don’t click on “CD Drive (E:)”. This is NOT your CD drive! 

Copying Files from Your Computer to Your H: Drive
Step 1: On the My Applications window, click the All Drives H, S, W icon.
Step 2: Choose Local Disk C:. Note section above describing granting permissions.
Step 3: Find and single-click the filename.
Step 4: From the Edit menu, click Copy.
Step 5: From the Folders pane, click My Documents.
Step 6: Open the appropriate folder
Step 7: From the Edit menu, click Paste.
