Eastern is retiring the current student network file shares, known as the Z: Drive. The new default file storage system will be Microsoft OneDrive for Business. 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.
ITS will be changing all student data from the local Z: drives to Read Only, at which point students can copy files to OneDrive.
Additional information will be emailed as students return to campus. The ITS Help Desk will be available to assist all students.
