Student H: Drives to be Removed on June 30, 2021

 
Notice: Student H: drives will be permanently removed on June 30, 2021. IT completed the migration of student H: drives to OneDrive on May 18, 2021 as previously communicated. The files once stored on the H: drive have not been deleted but have been relocated to OneDrive. Content previously available in the S: drive, T: drive, or J: drive is available in Canvas, or by contacting your instructor, advisor, or supervisor.
Background:
For many years, most of Cedarville’s files have been stored in network drives. These drives, known by their alphabet soup of drive letters (i.e., H:, J:, S:, or T:) were automatically made available on any University-provided computer after login but performed poorly today in a world of mobile-first, always-on computing.
Cedarville University Information Technology is retiring its venerable and obsolete network drives in favor of OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage platform integrated with Office 365.
Common Questions & Answers:
Q: I had files on my H: drive that I don’t want to lose! What do I do?
A: Good news! Information Technology migrated your H: Drive files to OneDrive. H: Drive information appears in a folder named “Migrated_H_Drive” in your OneDrive.
Q: Can I start using OneDrive now?
A: Yes! Click this link to get started: Open My OneDrive. You will need to authenticate using your full Cedarville email address.
Q: What if there are files missing after the migration?
A: If there are files missing from your OneDrive that were in your H: drive before the migration, please contact us as soon as possible.
Q: What happened to my H: Drive after the migration?
A: Your H: drive was available until the first week of June in case problems came up.
Q: I did not know this was happening! Was it ever communicated?
A: Yes. This was communicated in the TechNews email messages on April 27, 2021 and May 18, 2021. You can read the archived announcements here: Student H: Drive Migration to OneDrive and Student H: Drive Migration to OneDrive Completed.
