Remote Software - How to Open Files

The instructions below will guide you through opening the files you have saved directly to your computer.  Do not save the files directly to the server - they will be deleted! 

To open files from a Remote Software session, you will need to make sure you have checked the "Drives" box when you connected, as show below.
