UW-Madison Box - Preserve your personal Box account and data

Audience: Individuals who created a personal Box account using their UW-Madison email address.

Background: Select personal Box accounts that were created using a first.last@wisc.edu or subdomain (ex: bucky@doit.wisc.edu) email address will be converted into a managed UW-Madison Box account to ensure data shared with a UW-Madison email address is protected by the UW-Madison Box license agreement.

This document lists options for either preserving your personal Box account or your personal Box account data before the account is converted into a managed UW-Madison Box account.

Option 1: Preserve your personal Box account

Select this option if you do not want your personal Box account and its data to be converted into a managed UW-Madison Box account.

  • Change your personal Box account's primary email address from a UW-Madison email address to a personal email address. View instructions here.

Option 2: Preserve personal Box account data

Select this option if you would like your personal Box account to be converted into a managed UW-Madison Box account but you do not want your personal data moved into the managed account.

  • Transfer ownership of your personal Box files from your current personal Box account that uses a UW-Madison email address to a newly created personal Box account that uses a personal email address. View instructions here.
