Service Update: Home Drive (U: drive) Storage Decommission

The process of decommissioning the personal home drive (known as the U: drive) started in December 2021. OIT will be publishing guides for self-migration as well as offer assisted or automated migrations beginning Spring 2022 to alternative cloud storage locations.

  • Personal Rice Home Drives (known as the U:drive) are no longer provisioned.
  • Websites hosted on the Personal Rice Home Drives will need to be migrated to Blogs if they need to be maintained. 
  • Unused and/or empty U:drives will be automatically decommissioned (beginning December, 2021)
  • Group and/or Departmental storage drives are not part of these service changes.

Data migrated to OneDrive by OIT will show up in your OneDrive in a folder called UDriveMigration.
