Mac OS Upgrade

Del capitanue to security vulnerabilities in OSX 10.9.5 and older, a required upgrade (OS X 10.11.6) is scheduled for spring break. However, you may upgrade anytime between now and March 13, 2017. Just let us know if you want to upgrade sooner.

While we do not anticipate any issues with a loss of data, as part of the operating system upgrade, individual software you have installed may require updating. Therefore, we suggest that you backup your data to your S drive prior to the upgrade. For more information on saving data to the S drive, there is a technology tutorial on the IT@Sam webpage with instructions.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the IT@Sam Service Desk by either calling 4-1950 or emailing
