Accessing SSS After Graduation

NOTE: These instructions are good for the time period between graduation and when your account is deactivated (3 months after your graduation date).

To Connect to Your Folder on SSS

  1. Open your web browser - Internet Explorer (Windows only), Safari (Macintosh only), Chrome or Firefox (both).
  1. In the address bar at the top of your screen (where it typically starts with http://www…) completely erase what appears and type:  ftp://sss.hamilton.edu. Then press the Enter or return key on your keyboard.
  2. When asked to log in, enter hamilton-s\ followed by your e-mail ID (e.g. hdstudent). NOTE: the direction of the slash after the “–s” is important!  In this example, you would type hamilton-s\hdstudent.
    1. Safari users take note:  In Safari, do not precede your userID with “hamilton-s\”. Instead, simply enter your ID in its short form (e.g. hdstudent) in the “Name” field.
  3. Enter your SSS password in the password field (this is the same password you use for My Hamilton).
    1. NOTE: In Internet Explorer, do not include a check mark in the box labeled Log on anonymously.  You may click on the pictures below to view them more clearly.

To Download Your File(s) to Your Hard Drive

  1. Once you have successfully logged in, you can download your file/files to your hard drive. Depending on the browser you are using, the procedure will be slightly different.  See below:
    1. Firefox (Mac & Windows)

      1. When the SSS folder opens, locate and then open your class year folder.
      2. In your class year folder, locate your user folder and open it.
      3. Right click on the file you want to download (Windows & Mac).  If your Macintosh mouse won't right click, you can press and hold down the command key while clicking once on the file name. Choose Save link as and then choose to Save File.
    2. Internet Explorer (Windows)

      1. Although it may appear as though you can click on your files to download them, the process is laborious (requiring you to log in several more times) and may or may not work.  The correct way to download your file is to click on the Page menu (on the far right side at the top of IE - see illustration below) and select Open FTP site in Windows Explorer from the drop down menu.

        ----->           

  1. Click Allow if you are presented with a security warning. Next, you will be asked to log in a second time.  Enter your login information as before with Hamilton-s\userid. Replace userid with your real user name (e.g. hdstudent) and enter your SSS (My Hamilton) password.
  2. Select your class year folder and then select your user folder.  You should now see your files.  The preferred way to download a file is to right click on it and choose Copy to folder.  If you forget this and double click on the file instead, most file types will allow you to Save the file.  However, this may not work with all file types.

             c.  Chrome (Mac & Windows)

  1. When the SSS folder opens, locate and then open your class year folder.
  2. In your class year folder, locate your user folder and open it.
  3. After you’ve navigated to your folder, click on the file you wish to download.  The download will happen automatically and the file will be listed along the bottom left edge of your Chrome window.

  1. Click on the file name and it will open the appropriate application (in the example above, it will open MS Word).  From there you can save the file to the desired location.

              d.  Safari (Macintosh)

  1. When the SSS folder opens, locate and then open your class year folder.
  2. In your class year folder, locate your user folder and open it.
  3. Click on the file(s) you want to download and simply drag it/them to your desktop (or into the desired folder on your drive).
