Storage - Download a file in Storage on the Go

How to download a file from Storage on the Go.

  1. Log in to Storage on the Go by going to and clicking on the button to Log In to Storage on the Go.
  2. Browse to the file you would like to download by single clicking on the name of the directory you would like to open.  If you would like to download the whole folder/directory, see Storage - Download a Directory in Storage on the Go .  Note that when browsing your J Drive, you will need to click on user1, then the first initial of your last name, then your username to locate your home folder.
  3. Once you have located the file to download, click on the "Download" button to the right of the file name you would like to download.

  4. Depending on browser and browser settings, your file 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.  If you plan to work on the file and upload after revisions have been made (see Storage - Upload a file in Storage on the Go ), saving the file first is your best option.

If you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or  You may also visit the Help Desk on the first floor of the Karrmann Library.
