User Manual

Inter-institutional and interdisciplinary science and research requires team-oriented work. Thus, the demand for suitable products that support such collaboration increases. Working together and simply exchanging documents flexibly in this context is an important prerequisite.

With Unibox, the University of Rostock provides such a service to students and employees of the University of Rostock. With the online storage service, it is possible to exchange, edit, save and synchronize data between users, desktop computers and mobile devices. The data access takes place cross-platform via a web browser or via the Unibox clients for the operating systems Windows, Max OS, Linux, Apple iOS and Android. Each user has 40 GB of storage space available.

As soon as you leave the University of Rostock, your data in the Unibox will be deleted in due time. If you are the owner of one or more folders that you share with other university members, please transfer the ownership rights to another folder member before leaving the University of Rostock. 
Please note that this user must accept the invitation as owner of the folder, only then the data is transferred. If this user does not accept the invitation until your account is deleted, the data will be deleted. (Transfer of ownership rights)
