Accessing the NIC Server

The NIC maintains an 8 TB file server for temporary storage of data acquired in the NIC to allow for easy transport of data between microscopes, our offline analysis systems, and any other computer at UCSF.

To access the server from Windows:

  1. Open a windows explorer window and go to Tools → Map Network Drive
  2. Pick an unused drive letter and type \\nicdata\data
  3. Login using the same nicuser account you use to login to the microscopes.

From Mac:

  1. In the Finder go to Go → Connect to Sever
  2. Enter smb://nicdata.ucsf.edu/data
  3. Enter CAMPUS in the Workgroup/Domain field and the nicuser username and password.

Once you've logged on to the server, create a folder to store your files in. Then save data to your heart’s content.

If you're trying to access the server from Windows 7 Home, you'll find that you can't. Here's the fix so that you can access the server from Windows 7 Home:
