MyFiles@bc (Retiring December 2015)
MyFiles@bc will be retired by the end of 2015. At that time, any data on MyFiles@bc will no longer be accessible. This was decided because in the 10 years since MyFiles@bc was implemented, better and more cost-effective file storage and sharing solutions have emerged on campus. Also, according to the vendor, the future of MyFiles@bc is uncertain.
Recommended early action
Important: File/folder permissions are not migrated. After you move your data, if you have files/folders you want to share with others, you will need to set up sharing for those files/folders. Learn how to set up sharing in Google Drive.
REVIEW what you store in MyFiles@bc. Your files will fall under one of four categories, each will require a different approach.
- Files no longer needed: No action will be required.
- Files you want to keep: Move any (non-confidential) files you still need to Google Drive, the BC Wiki, Canvas, department servers, etc.
- Files that contain confidential data: Secure, restricted, or confidential files need to be considered carefully. Hold off on moving them as MyFiles@bc is still an appropriate option. Stay tuned for additional recommendations.
- Departmental and group folders: If you want your departmental/group folders moved to Google Drive, please contact the Help Center at 617-552-HELP (4357).
If you have any questions, please contact the Help Center at (617) 552-HELP (4357) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
