Box Drive Information


Check out the UNH Box Information Site for additional resources, tips, and troubleshooting.

Access billions of files from the comfort of your desktop without needing to take up much of your actual hard drive space.  Work with these files in the cloud just as if they were on your desktop through your Apple Mac Finder or your Windows Explorer.  Whether you create a new Microsoft Word document or edit a PDF in Adobe, any changes you make automatically save back to Box.  You can also right-click any file or folder to take advantage of collaborative Box features such as sharing and locking or creating Box Notes.

You can also mark content for offline use; Box downloads this content to your device's hard drive so you can work on it without being connected to the Internet.  Drive automatically uploads the changes you made offline the next time you connect.  (Unlike working with online files, marking content for offline use does take up hard drive space.)

If you already use Sync, consider switching over to Box Drive.  Drive 2.4 includes an uninstaller that automatically removes Sync and cleans up your synced content.


Supported Operating Systems:

  • Windows 7 Pro, 8.1, and 10 with 32 Bit and 64 Bit Versions available
  • Mac 10.11 and 10.12

Additional things to note:

  • Box Drive does not save files to your computer unless you make it available offline, more information is available at Box Drive - Offline Mode
