We’ve hired movers, tell us where to put your data.
If you’d like to choose where we put your data, fill out this “Find your drive” survey by May 22. If you don’t choose, the default location for your data will be Microsoft OneDrive. We will send you an email one week prior to your data being migrated so that you will know when to expect the change. You will still be able to access your files and links in Box through March 2021. (They will be read-only, however.)
To get ready for the move:
- Delete unnecessary files and remove yourself from files or folders that you don’t want or need.
- Box comments will not be migrated to either Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive. If any of these comments are necessary for your records or business process, please cut and paste the information into the file itself or a separate document of your choice (Notepad, Word, Google docs, etc.).
- Faculty and staff: Institutional and departmental data, including any information that may be needed by IU after you transfer positions or leave the university should be moved into Box folders owned by a non-personal account. This will ensure continuity for your colleagues and the university. Contact your IT Pro for help. If you don’t have an IT Pro, please contact the UITS Support Center.
- Be on the lookout for additional information about how data stored in Box accounts owned by non-personal accounts will be migrated.
