Phase 2: Personal Folders
Phase II is currently underway with an estimated completion in early June.
On June 4th, 2020, at 8:00 a.m., access to personal folders on the Education File Server will be deactivated. EdIT will be working with ITS to migrate data from users’ folders to their respective OneDrive accounts.
Files will be migrated into a newly-created folder in your OneDrive account called EdIT-Migrated. This will establish a distinction between files that were already in your OneDrive and those that EdIT has migrated on your behalf.
If you would prefer to move the files yourself, you may do so at any time prior to June 4th. You may complete this 1-question survey to let us know whether you prefer to move the data yourself. If you do not respond to the survey, we will start moving your data to OneDrive on June 4th.
We understand that these changes may impact your workflows and practices. In order to help you prepare for this transition, EdIT will be offering a OneDrive Training via Zoom on May 25th from 2-3 p.m. Recordings of the training will be posted to Ed Hub and the Ed Portal. We highly recommend that you participate in this training, especially if you have not previously used OneDrive. The training will provide a broad overview of OneDrive, as well as tips for managing, sharing, and collaborating on files in the Office 365 cloud environment. You can register for the training at this Zoom registration page.
As always, the EdIT team is available to help answer any questions you may have regarding this migration. You can ask for help by visiting help.unc.edu and clicking Ask Us.
