I Drive: all files to be migrated by 29 March

Typing

Time is ticking, don’t delay!

The Trust is currently in the process of migrating the I Drive to a new file server.   The process will be exactly the same as when we recently migrated the P Drive.

The main reason for this is to help ensure the Trust is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), but this is also a good opportunity for departments to do some housekeeping of their files, consolidating everything in to one place to streamline and simplify access.

Everyone should already have the new S drive showing on their device. 'Public' has already been migrated, and the new structure is in place. For some departments, you may already have the correct access and simply need to copy and paste content from the I drive to the S drive.

Other department leads or users who own folders on the I Drive may need to log a call with the Service Desk. By 'owning' a folder, we mean that you have asked to have the folder created, or you are the lead person in relation to contents of this folder.

Once you have logged a call, a member of the technical team will be in touch to talk you through the process of getting your files migrated. Don’t worry, we will guide you through this process, but please be mindful of the time constraints!

All requests to have new folders created or access changes on the I Drive will now automatically be passed to the technical team dealing with the file migration.

If in doubt about a folder, please speak to colleagues or log a call with the Service Desk as everything that is needed must be moved before the March 29 deadline. Failure to act in time could result in loss of access to your data.

Thank you for your cooperation.
