In May, 2016, UFIT launched the Dropbox for Faculty service. The service is now available to all faculty and staff to share files for academic, administrative, and research purposes using the same interface and functionalities everyone is accustomed to using. Visit www.it.ufl.edu/gatorcloud and click on the link atop the left column to establish a free UF Dropbox for Education account.
The Dropbox for Education service is approved by the Information Security Office as a file-sharing tool. The Standard for working with Restricted and Sensitive data applies when using Dropbox for Education. Please check with your local IT manager if you have any questions about the appropriateness of using Dropbox with the file(s) you want to share. If no local IT manager is available then contact the UF Computing Help Desk before uploading a file that might contain data classified as Restricted or Sensitive.
At this time, there is no plan to sunset File-Express. More information about the Dropbox for Education service is available on the FAQ page. Anyone needing assistance in establishing their free Dropbox account may contact the Help Desk at 392-352-HELP/4357.
