Changes to file storage – April 2020

April 21st, 2020

There has never been a more urgent time to migrate your Z: drive data to OneDrive.

The Z: drive is reaching the end of its serviceable life. You must migrate important and current data now.

Chief Digital Officer, David Hill said: “Our existing storage technologies have certainly served us well but are now in need of costly upgrades and replacements.

“Maintaining the existing drives carries growing risk, and this is our opportunity to bring about a new way of storing our data.”

Migrate your Z: drive data now – for more information visit the OneDrive Sharepoint page or contact your local Campus IT Support. If you are and EndNote user please see this additional guide.

Work to make your personal Z: drive “read only” has been temporarily paused during these unprecedented times to ensure continuity and improve user access to their data and ability to migrate as a matter of urgency.

Specialist teams have begun engaging with R: and S: drive data owners with the aim to arrange relocation to Office 365 or dedicated and purpose-built facilities in the future.

If you are an R: and S: drive data owner please contact your local Campus IT Support.
