Adopt a file share litter removal

Do your part to keep your office file share (S: drive) clear of outdated material and unnecessary data.

All Extension staff are cordially invited to participate in a group clean-up beginning NOW!

Reporting shows that approximately 50% of all data stored on office shares has not been accessed in at least six months. As we are nearing the capacity of our file servers, EIT staff will need to consider how to best keep things running smoothly--actions could include per-office quotas, lifecycle policies or costly hardware upgrades requiring system downtime.

By doing your part to clean up the clutter we can reduce unnecessary utilization and improve the system for everyone. Think of it like cleaning out your closets at home--if you haven't used it in six months or a year, maybe it's time to let it go!

Just ten minutes a day for a week can accomplish a great deal. To let everyone know how much we have accomplished I'll be keeping track of the total utilization and will report back soon. If you have any questions please let us know!

Your friendly sysadmin,
