UAB Dropbox ending Oct. 1; use Box and OneDrive with enhanced features



Beginning Oct. 1, UAB Dropbox file-sharing will be replaced by UAB Box and OneDrive, services that offer the same functionality with enhanced features such as greater and even unlimited storage.

The software that runs UAB Dropbox is nearing the end of its supportable life, so UAB IT held town halls in early summer to co-author solutions for its replacement with the campus community.

What will take place: 
On Oct. 1, 2017, no new file uploads to UAB Dropbox will be allowed. You will still be able to download files from Dropbox until they have all expired on Oct. 14, 2017. 
On Oct. 14, 2017, the service will be turned off, and the Dropbox page will redirect users to alternatives using UAB Box or OneDrive.
