Public drive Switch Off

Hands typing on keyboard

As you should all already be aware, the Public drive is due to be switched off on Friday, 21st December.

The IT team are mindful about departments who may still have not migrated their files over.   To ensure everyone has access to critical data over the Christmas and New Year period, it has been agreed that the Public drive will be kept on but changed to READ ONLY.
This change will happen on Saturday, 22nd December at approximately 9.00am.

You will NOT be able to save any data on Public from this date, this simply allows you to open and view.  This is designed as a last resort for users who haven’t migrated over.

  • If you are still accessing files on the P drive, please act now
  • If you own folders, please log a call with the IT Service Desk. 
    By 'own' we mean you asked to have the folder created or you are known as, or believe to be the lead person in relation to contents of this folder.
    If you don’t own the folder, please contact the person who you believe is the owner and ask them to raise a ticket. IT staff will get back to you ASAP but please be mindful that it is now very late to be setting up new file structures so please ensure you have a contingency plan.

Early in the new year, we will announce the new date for the final switch off. 

As soon as the Public content is migrated, we will focus on migrating departments. The deadline for departments to migrate is 29th March 2019. 

Thank you for your support with this.
