IMPORTANT: Once your migration is complete, please delete all legacy data from your old U: drive and notify OIT using the Help Request Form. In the "I need to..." drop-down menu, select "report that my U: drive is now empty". Failure to do so could result in your data being overwritten later.

If you need additional storage, submit your request to the OIT Help Desk, using this form: https://oit.rice.edu/request-help or select other options, OneDrive or Google Drive.
