Reminder: Public Drives being decommissioned this month

Have you moved your files from P: and K: yet?

Overhead image of man using a laptop computer, words Technically SpeakingInformation Technology Services is leading an initiative to transition the files currently stored on the public shared network drives (P: and K:) to our Office 365 file-storage solutions, OneDrive and Teams. These solutions are newer, faster, more secure and more accessible than the old shared network drives, which have been in use since 2005.

ITS has been sending communications to file owners letting them know their options for transitioning their files but would like to remind everyone to make sure their files are moved before the public drives are shut down Monday. Remember, this is only for the public network drives; content on other drives, such as department-specific network drives, will be unaffected by this change.

Information about OneDrive and Teams, including a Quick Start Guide that includes instructions and best practices for both services, is available on the ITS Office 365 knowledge-base page.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ITS Service Desk at 303-352-7548 or or email from your MSU Denver email account.
