In April, Technology Services announced that University of Illinois Box accounts now have unlimited storage. Box is a free cloud-based storage solution for backing up your research data and related documentation. This month we are highlighting two features that will make this platform your ideal backup option.

 
   
 
 

 Tagging

With a couple of tags, you can instantly categorize and label files for hassle-free searches down the road, regardless where you saved them. Try it out by adding tags to:

  • Box folders
  • box notes
  • any other file/document
 
   
 
 

Versioning

Uploading a new version of a file into the same folder as a pre-existing document with the same name appears to automatically overwrite with the updated version, but you still have access to the older versions. The version icon next to the file name shows how many previous versions of the file are saved (up to 100, including online "auto saving"). By clicking on the version icon you can:

  • See all older versions
  • Download them
  • Make an older version the most current one
