What is happening?

Our external vendor has notified us that we will need to reschedule the planned maintenance work for this evening to Thursday 16 May.

The maintenance is now scheduled to occur between 19:00 and 23:00 on either Wednesday 15th May or Thursday 16th May, and the affected areas will be separated as follows:

  • Wednesday 15 May – Home (H: ) and shared filespace (R:, S: & T: drives) used mainly by Old Aberdeen users in CASS, COPS, Admin and also the School of Radiology.
  • Thursday 16 May – Home (H: ) and shared filespace (R:, S: & T: drives) used mainly by Foresterhill users in CLSM except School of Radiology

What should you do?

Please be aware that access to your home and shared drives will be briefly disrupted during the latter part of the maintenance period and should be considered “At Risk” the rest of the time.

If you are planning to work on documents etc during this period, please save your work locally onto your hard drive or a USB drive.  After this period, copy these files back to the shared drive to enable them to be backed up overnight.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
