  1. Go to 
  2. Browse to the directory/folder you would like to download by single clicking on the name of the directory you would like to open.  NOTE: When browsing to your J Drive, you will need to click on User1, followed by the first initial of your last name, then your username to locate your home folder.
  3. Once you have located the directory/folder to download, click on the three dots menu and choose "Download".


  4. Depending on browser and browser settings, your folder may immediately begin downloading to your default downloads directory.  You may also be prompted with a dialog which ask if you would like to open the file immediately or save it.  The folder will be zipped first and then download to your computer.  You will then need to unzip the downloaded folder to work with its contents.
