Personal network space on Microwave is slowly being phased out in favor of IceBox. IceBox allows someone to save, sync and share files easily from within the web console at https://icebox.bowdoin.edu. File can be accessed from anywhere in the world from almost any device with an Internet connection. For more information, visit the IceBox information pages.
