IT Advisory – Moving & Purging O: Common Drive Contents

Sent 2/9/15

First a reminder/refresher/revelation:

"O: is called "Common" because it is just that, common access for all USI employees. Anything saved/copied there, with a few notable exceptions that prove the rule true, can be read, changed, deleted, by any USI employee. If you have been using O: for other purposes, please contact us for suggestions on how we can help you get a more private network shared space.

Second, the real reason why I asked you here: 

O: Common data is being evicted from its current SAN. You will not see any difference in where O: is, but you will see some change in contents. I do not want to have to move everything. Some of it is dated. Some of it should probably be shared or stored elsewhere.

 If you have data on O: that you want to have there after the move, please identify it before Friday afternoon, 1/30/2015. Sometime late afternoon, I plan to remove the share and recreate it on the new location. You will probably see the red X on your drive that will go away when you click on it. What will also go away is files that no one asks to have moved.

Please DO NOT respond to this email with information. Email the IT Help Desk, and have a ticket created, if you want to make certain you have tracking of the request to move.

Anyone who knows me knows I do not want to lose data. But I do want to clean up the O: drive and ultimately make it a more useful resource.


Remember: Friday.

And thank you.
