Upcoming X: Drive changes: Shut down campus computers by 11 p.m. on Mon., Oct. 23

Group directories, also known as the "X:" Drive, will be unavailable from 12:01 a.m. through 6 a.m. on Tuesday, October 24 as OIT moves these directories to a new server.

To avoid losing any unsaved changes, save all files, logoff or shutdown your computer before leaving work on Monday, and avoid saving files or making changes to X: Drive folders during the maintenance window.

During the outage window, you should be able to open and read files if necessary, but any changes to files, folders, etc. made during this time will not be saved.

If you do not turn your computer off on Monday, October 23, you will need to restart the computer on Tues., Oct. 24 in order to see your X: drive.

Additionally, Mac users will need to change their drive mappings to reflect the new server name. On Tuesday, OIT will send additional information to Mac users who may need to change drive mappings.

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Help Desk for assistance.
