This summer Eastern will be retiring the current student network file shares, known as the Z: Drive. The new default file storage system will be Microsoft OneDrive for Business. ITS will be migrating all student data from the local Z: drives to O365 OneDrive for Business in the Microsoft cloud. This move will not only provide greater accessibility and more granular recovery, it significantly increases storage for each student by 20,000 times the current allocation.
Additional information will be emailed during the summer and again in the fall as students return to campus. The ITS Help Desk will be available to assist all students. In addition, a series of short informational/tutorial videos on O365 OneDrive for Business are available at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/video-get-started-with-onedrive-work-or-school-b30da4eb-ddd2-44b6-943b-e6fbfc6b8dde
