Removal of access to Z: drives


July 16th, 2021

In May and June Digital and Technology Services communicated that changes were due to take place regarding the removal of personal file storage (Z: drive).  We can now confirm that access to Z: drives will be removed on Monday 2 August.

Action required

If you wish to keep any data, you will need to copy this to OneDrive by the end of July – view the simple step by step guide on how to do this.

Please note the following points:

  • If you currently use EndNote and your EndNote library is synced to your Z: drive, you will need to update this by following the Managing Your EndNote Desktop Library guidelines
  • There will be some printers on campuses where ‘Scan to Home’ will no longer function. Xerox are currently replacing printers and are working towards having all old printers that are not compatible swapped or removed by the end of August. Users can use ‘Scan to Email’ or use an alternative printer with ‘Scan to OneDrive’
  • You will not be able to access your Z: drive from Monday 2 August.

Thank you for your support in moving to using OneDrive, which is an up-to-date and more robust way of storing files. If you require any help, please contact the IT Service Desk.
