Best Practices for Emailing Files

Updated February 2011

Remember to also look at Citrix Info for an overview of running MATLAB through Citrix.

While working on the project, save files in MATLAB to your G-drive. This allows you to work on the project from any computer on campus, or even away from campus as long as it has an internet connection. More importantly, these files are backed up every night.

Once done with the project, there are three ways to email files that are on the G-drive.

  1. Copy ("Save as") the file(s) to the hard-drive of the computer. Then open up your email and you should be able to attach the file(s) to an email.
  2. Go to a computer on campus and logon. This gives you automatic access to the G-drive so within email, you should be able to attach the file(s) in your email.
  3. Figure out a way to access the G-drive from your computer. See OTS Applications for links to information on how to access the G-drive from off-campus (different links for PCs and MACs).


Navigating the network and directory structure of Loyola can be challenging and frustrating at times, even when things are working perfectly. First off, anytime you're having trouble with Matlab or Citrix, whether you can't log on, or it seems to be hung, etc., you should contact Technology Services right away. You can call x5555 or you can email them the problem at 5555@loyola.edu. If you need to contact them, also contact me. If you're calling 5555, email me also about your issue. Or, if you're sending them an email, copy me on the email. THE FIRST TIME I HEAR OF AN ISSUE SHOULD NOT BE THE DAY THE PROJECT IS DUE.

Just having problems finding the files to email me, even though you KNOW they're there in your G-drive? I WILL NOT ACCEPT FILES IN WORD, OR ANY OTHER FORMAT OTHER THAN THE REQUESTED .M FILES AND .JPG FILES, etc. Here's what you do AS LAST RESORT.
