H: drive reminder

MS 365 logo

What is happening to my H: drive?

We are currently migrating our core ICT systems to Microsoft 365. This is designed to make simple day-to-day tasks easier and to help us work together and more efficiently across the council.

As part of that migration, your H: drive is being replaced by OneDrive, part of the MS365 suite.

Why are we changing to OneDrive?

Onedrive is included within the cloud-based MS365 environment, and by moving away from H:drives, it eases storage and backup costs on our current systems.  Onedrive is integrated with other MS365 applications, and is the designated place for individual storage.

What do I need to do?
To help you get as much benefit as possible from the move, please look at what is currently stored on your H: drive and decide:

  • What can I delete?
  • What do I need to keep?


Read the Onedrive guidance to find out more about what should or shouldn’t be stored in there.

What if I am unsure about what to do with information currently in my H:drive?

Have a look at the further guidance to help decide where information should be stored, seek advice from your manager, or contact the Compliance and Regulatory team if anything is still unclear.

Next steps

Our ICT team will contact you to let you know when your H: drive is moving to OneDrive and what steps you need to take.

Many employees make little or no use of their H: drive, so the ICT team have contacted them first, allowing more time for people with fuller H: drives to prepare for the move.

What happens if I don’t do anything?

The migration is happening in stages across the organisation. We want to give you time to carry out housekeeping in your H: drive.

ICT will notify you with dates for your migration and details on what to do. After this date, your H: drive will be available in read only format. After 2 weeks, your H: drive will be removed.

If you have any questions, please contact the IT service desk  01546604060
