Every Fall MDS Tech gets phone calls or emails from recently graduated students who want to access their Drivespace. Every Fall we tell them their data is gone, because we delete the accounts during summer.
Here’s another article with more detail on how to merge multiple mail accounts, calendars, drive material, etc.
Although this process is hardly painless, here are the step-by-step instructions—along with a few automated workflows—to help you transfer your data in less time and with fewer headaches than you might think.
It’s tricky to visualize how much room a digital file takes up. Even though they are intangible, those files still fill up your allotted storage, whether that be your cloud storage, thumb drive, hard drive, SSD…. whatever.
Perhaps it would help to think of data in terms of rice.
What about your data after you graduate? Your email?
Some questions answered:
1) We will delete your email accounts mid-summer — usually in July.
2) There are instruction on the tech site for taking your data with you –> https://tech.mountdesales.net/?p=722
Note that your MDS Drive space has unlimited Drive storage…..but personal Drive accounts only have 15 gig, unless you pay for more.
Yes, you COULD create multiple personal drive accounts and stash part of your data under different accounts, but do you REALLY want to complicate your life that much?
3) Any external sites like Prezi will still work with your MDS email as a login – but you won’t be able to receive emails from the service [and that includes the “I forgot my password” and “Click this link to prove you are legit” emails].
