Box users: Move necessary folders by Sept. 7

Those currently using Box—a service to store, edit and share files securely—who participated in the pilot program or began using it before Aug. 17, must take additional steps before Sept. 7.

To finalize the implementation of Box at Case Western Reserve University, all previously provisioned personal and restricted folders (folders created during the pilot program and before Wednesday, Aug. 17) will be deleted Wednesday, Sept. 7.

All useful material located within these folders and subfolders needs to be moved by Tuesday, Sept. 6 at the latest.

If you are moving data that is not restricted, simply create a new folder and move it.

If you are moving data that is restricted, move it to the restricted folder(s) created by University Technology ([U]Tech). Only technicians at the [U]Tech Service Desk can create new restricted folders.

The name for your “personal” folder is your network ID and the name for your restricted folder is “restricted – your network ID.” Any folders that were provisioned outside the “personal” and “restricted” format will not be deleted.

Box training can be self-administered. By visiting, you will have access to detailed, online resources, information about different file management and storage options, and comprehensive videos.

For more information or questions, please contact the [U]Tech Service Desk at or call 216.368.HELP (4357).
