Shared area moves


During the week beginning Monday 29 August we will be moving shared areas to new server locations. Each move will start at 19:00 and files will be unavailable for up to 2 hours as we carry out the work. You should make sure you have closed any shared files that you have open before 19:00.


The schedule for moves is:
  • Wednesday 31 August: windleden\shared3 will move to shareddata03\shared3
  • Thursday 1 September: ashopton\shared4 will move to shareddata04\shared4
  • Sunday 4 September: langsett\shared2 will move to shareddata02\shared2

If you are using the University Managed Desktop, Yoyo Desktop or a Windows computer with the Novell Client your new shared drive location will automatically configure the first time you log in after the move. Most shortcuts and linked documents should continue to work, however, some may need setting to point to the new location.

Those using unmanaged Windows, Mac and Linux will need to replace the old server name with the new server name in their connection settings following the move. They may also need to reconfigure, or recreate any shortcuts which point specifically to the old server location. Instructions for setting up connections can be found here: http://shef.ac.uk/cics/filestore/using

As a result of the move, these shared areas will now be available in UniDrive through MUSE.
