Working with Files and Data
Backing Up Files
The OCIO uses CrashPlan to back up and protect files on your device in case of a disaster. CrashPlan is available to download for all MITS partners.

Storing and Sharing
Where should I store my files?
We recommend using OneDrive for personal file storage and Teams for file collaboration with others in your department, across the university, or outside of the university. Both are part of the overall Microsoft 365 product suite you have access to as a university employee.
The Administrative Resource Center has a large number of job aids and training materials for OneDrive, Teams, and other Microsoft 365 tools. If you have questions about the best tool to use for your needs, contact the IT Service Desk for assistance.
The OCIO does not recommend storing files on your hard drive.
File Share Requests
You are provided access to a basic file share (K: drive) for collaboration with other OCIO supported areas. Use cases for this file share are typically very specific.
