How to access your files on your desktop with Files for LogMeIn

Connect your storage space as a network drive for easy access from your PC or Mac.


  • Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 with the latest version of the Client
  • Mac OS X 10.9 or above with the latest version of the Client
  1. Open the Client.
  2. At the top of the Client under File, click Open.


    Your Files drive is added to Windows Explorer under Computer as LogMeIn Files - [your LogMeIn ID].
    Note: Files for LogMeIn tries to create a share drive letter. It starts with Z:\ and works backwards through the alphabet until it finds an available letter.

    On Mac OS versions LogMeIn Files is mounted under “$HOME/Volumes/LogMeIn Files - account e-mail”.

    Important: The space listed as available under your Files drive refers to your main hard drive. It is not reflective of the 1TB of space available in your account.

What to do next:

To stop using Files in this way, click File > Detach LogMeIn Files drive. No data is lost.
