What Happens When I Retire?


Suggestions for Storage

  1. Create an account for on-line file storage using a NON-W&L email account (we do not make any specific recommendations, but here are a few)
    1. Box (Personal)
    2. DropBox
    3. Mega
    4. Google Drive
  2. Log into MyVI
  3. Launch the Chrome Web browser
  4. Navigate to your on-line storage provider (from step 1)
  5. The following instructions are for Google Drive; if you use another service, they will be similar:
    1. Log in   Select New -> File Upload
    2. Navigate to This PC
    3. Open your H drive
    4. Select files to move to the cloud service
    5. Depending on the amount of data, you might need to move a few files and let that upload complete before moving the next set of folders

Move your Box Data

  1. Create a PERSONAL Box  account using a NON-W&L email account
  2. Log into you W&L box account
  3. Click on the "Share" for any folders you want to move and select "Invite collaborators"
  4. box collaborator
  5. Add the account from Step 1 as a "Co-Owner".  They will appear as Pending
  6. box coowner
  7. Log into your PERSONAL Box account and accept the "Collaborator Invitation" from Step 3 (this will update the collaboration from Pending to Co-Owner)
  8. Log back into your W&L email address; click on the folder you have shared out.
  9. In the Upper Right will be a list of people you have shared with; change the sharing for the Personal Account from "co-owner" to "owner"
  10. Click OK on the following message
  11. Change Item Owner
  12. If you log back into Box with the PERSONAL account, you can remove your W&L account as an Editor
  13. All files on the folder from step 3 are now owned by your personal account

Your W&L email

You can continue using your W&L email. If you decide not to use your W&L email, please set a temporary forward rule on your account as the account will be removed.
