FAUbox will get new storage systems at the end of november. Before the data will be transferred extensive housekeeping will happen. That means, that Accounts with no contact to FAUbox for more than 13 month and all their data will be deleted. Everybody, who shares some data belonging to those alumni should save these data to keep it after housekeeping is finished. Accounts and data of Staff and students of the FAU will only be deleted, if their affiliations to the FAU are finished for more than 13 month.
After this housekeeping, being done every night in the future, all data will be transferred to the new systems. This will be done without any interrupt of the service. Nobody should get notice of that. Data transfer will take a few weeks.
