T&I is replacing Dropbox with Google Drive, as Davidson’s primary cloud storage and file sharing solution. We have already begun to migrate our early adopters’
group. The second group and final phase is scheduled to begin in July, 2021. We will continue to provide updates as the project moves forward. Check out our Dropbox to Google Drive Migration Project article for the most up-to-date information.
This article will step you through the process of transitioning college data to your department or manager, as well as transferring any personal data you would like to retain to a personal account, prior to your last day. We will work with you to ensure a smooth transition as you leave Davidson. We are committed to your continued success and stand ready to support you on this journey.
Your email account will be deleted at the close of business on your final date of employment and access to Davidson College services will cease when your email account is deleted. This includes access to Outlook, Shared Mailboxes, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Moodle, Qualtrics, and any other services the college provides that you currently access using your Davidson College email and network password.
