Use the Private Computer File Access tab to configure the file access and viewing options that are available if the user selects This is a private computer while they are logging on to Outlook Web Access, or if the user logs on by using an authentication method other than forms-based authentication. File access lets a user open any file that is attached to an e-mail message and files that are available through Windows file share and Windows SharePoint Services document libraries.

After you select Enable direct file access, click Customize to customize the direct file access settings.
Note: The Direct File Access Settings are applied to Private Computer File Access and Public Computer File Access. Even though they can be set from either tab, you cannot have different settings for each.
