What to do with your Box account when you leave Cornell
This article applies to: Box
Cornell's Box contract covers active employees and students.
Students nearing graduation (or otherwise leaving) and staff nearing retirement (or otherwise leaving) should do the following:
- If you want to continue using Box for cloud storage, open a Box account under an email address that doesn't end in cornell.edu. Box offers free personal 10-GB accounts.
- Go through the folders in your Cornell Box account. Any folders that are work-related should be transferred to a co-worker. Any folders that are personal should be transferred to the new box account you have opened.
- Review the suggestions at Move Your Data Stored in Box for methods you can use to take your data with you.
