RE: Disabling of Dropbox accounts
Over the past few months, the Office of Information Technology has been working with all of you to migrate your data from Dropbox onto Microsoft OneDrive. As both applications are functionally the same, the choice to make this change was twofold:
OneDrive licenses are free with our 365 subscription whereas Dropbox licenses, under our current plan, are $300 each per year.
Any user can have a OneDrive license under our 365 subscription whereas our Dropbox agreement only allows us to have 85 concurrent users.
As you have now had ample time to become accustomed to using OneDrive, we would like to continue with the final phase of this migration project – the decommissioning of your Dropbox account. Unless we receive a response from you with a valid reason as to why you still need access to Dropbox, we plan to begin the process of disabling your Dropbox account over the next week so that we can begin to minimize our licensing costs for Dropbox.
If you no longer require Dropbox, there is nothing more you need to do. If, however, you feel there are any remaining issues with your migration to OneDrive and are not comfortable having your Dropbox account decommissioned, you must make the Office of Information Technology aware of your situation as soon as possible by submitting a proper ticket to the helpdesk with as many details as possible.
