As previously communicated, Information Technology will be migrating all Box online storage accounts to Microsoft OneDrive. Unlimited online storage on OneDrive is available to all Ball State students, faculty, and staff as part of their Ball State Office 365 account.
In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, Information Technology is developing a plan to automatically migrate Box accounts to OneDrive accounts. The next steps in this plan are as follows:
Personal folder migration schedule
Do not attempt to manually move an institutional folder. All institutional folders must be moved as part of the migration process in order to preserve their owners, contributors, and file and folder sharing permissions.
To identify whether or not a Box folder is an institutional folder or a personal one, please refer to this Technology HelpDesk Knowledge Base article. If you need help identifying an institutional folder, please contact the Technology HelpDesk at 765-285-1517.
Institutional folder migration schedule
Again, it is very important you do not attempt to manually move an institutional folder from Box into OneDrive. Information Technology will move all institutional folders as they are scheduled.
While Information Technology will do everything possible to ensure a smooth transition, there may be situations where the migration did not go as planned. It’s important to note that your original Box files and folders are not removed immediately after the migration occurs, so you can easily manage any files or folders that were not smoothly migrated during the automatic process.
As we move forward, additional details about the migration plan, along with any deadlines and actions required on your part, will be communicated in advance. For all current information and resources for the migration from Box to OneDrive, please refer to this Information Technology Knowledge Base page, https://bsu.edu/onedrivehelp.
