Access Files (Cabinet) with PAWS

You can access your files saved on Cabinet by using "My Files" from your "My Channels" section in PAWS.

As the My Files channel is a web interface, you must download your files to a local computer in order to save any changes to the file. After you have modified your file and saved the changes locally, you can upload the file to Folder or Cabinet using the My Files channel.
