It's possible to get files from your Windows account ("disks H: and M:") via SMB protocol. This also works for MacOS Finder ("Go->Connect to server")


from any file manager which supports SMB (Dolphin, Thunar, Nautilus)

Check if you have GVFS installed and install if necessary:

sudo apt install gvfs gvfs-backends

  • For M drive - smb://stastocoiscifs1.staff.vuw.ac.nz/SCIFAC_SHARED/
  • For H drive - smb://stastocoiscifs1.staff.vuw.ac.nz/SCIFAC_HOME/your_windows_login


  • domain name: staff
  • login: your_windows_login
  • password: Your Staff (Windows) password
  • [x] Remember Password


With mount

sudo mount -t cifs -o domain=staff,username=your_windows_login //stastocoiscifs1.staff.vuw.ac.nz/SCIFAC_home/your_windows_login/ /Path/to/mount/point/of/windows/home_drive

sudo mount -t cifs -o domain=staff,username=your_windows_login //stastocoiscifs1.staff.vuw.ac.nz/SCIFAC_shared/ /Path/to/mount/point/of/shared_drive
