DO NOT WAIT TO BACK UP YOUR WORK, REGULAR BACK-UP OF DATA IS GOOD PRACTICE

- Transfer ownership of your files from your university account to your new private personal Box account according to Box.com directions:
- If you are the owner of a folder, you can transfer folder ownership to a collaborator at any time. Simply follow the instructions above, and select Owner from the access level dropdown (this option is only visible to folder owners). The collaborator you designate will be the new "Owner" of the folder and your access level will be downgraded to "Editor".
- The contents of the folder will no longer count against your account's storage allowance. If you are transferring a private (yellow) folder, you will first need to invite the user to this folder before you can you transfer ownership. For larger transfers, we recommend doing this at the end of the day so users are not disrupted by the move. If you experience any issues, submit a support case so Box can assist with the transfer. If the new owner is in a different enterprise, then any Shared Link Custom URLs will be cleared.
Redundant and frequent backups save you headaches and heartache
Do regular backups in different places to prevent loss of invaluable data. A popular and widely used strategy is the 3-2-1 backup plan:
- 3 total copies of your data
- 2 different local storage devices
- 1 minimum remote copy
