Don't forget the benefits! (Need a recap?)
- Access to reliable storage services
- Faster connection to your files
- Addition of storage for more share drives

 

What do I need to do to again?
Before we begin completing these replacements, we will send you a notice via email with the date and time of your profile’s switch to our new system. On the day of your profile’s transition, do not make changes to your files or computer setup and log out when you leave for the day.

Prior the day of your profile’s upgrade, please back up and store any documents that you will need to work on during this transition to your OneDrive account.  

That’s it. You should see no other changes.


Psst For advanced preparation, check out our tech tutorials to learn how you can find out which hardware you are on.
