This is a guide to help you use, understand and manage the Personal Files tool. The Personal Files tool is an online storage place for files you want to store in your Canvas account. It has a maximum capacity of 200 megabytes (MB).

The Personal Files tool differs from the Files tool you may see in the pane on the left in your courses. That Files tool contains the files that the instructor uploads to that specific course and can only be accessed within the course.
