Shared M+Box accounts are available for departments, projects, student groups and other functions that require collaborative storage. These accounts allow files associated with a particular function or unit to be stored and shared in a way that allows the data to stay with the function or unit even when individuals move on. They also have a larger quota than a personal account.
In order to meet the needs of these account holders, shared M+Box accounts offer the following:
While you can login to the shared M+Box account as the account owner using the shared M+Google account, it is not required. Shared M+Box accounts are setup with a standard folder with the owners of the shared M+Google account as co-owners of that folder. This causes the standard folder to appear in the co-owners personal M+Box accounts, allowing it to be managed without a separate login.
Files placed in shared M+Box account folders count against the quota of the shared account, no matter who puts them there or how they get there, allowing you to use your personal M+Box account for your personal use.
