Beginning in January 2022, UFApps users with files stored on the M:Drive will have their current files archived in a new O:Drive titled “Old UFApps M Drive (O:).” Also, to better reflect that it is temporary storage space, the "M:StudentFileStorage" drive will be renamed "UFAppsTempStorage (M:)".
Any other files that you had stored in the M:Drive, including your Contacts, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Favorites, and Links folders before January 2022 can be found on the Old UFApps M Drive O: folder.
Starting January 1, 2023, any files in the M: drive two years old or more will be purged. Thus, UFApps users will always have access to two calendar years’ worth of their M: drive files.
These files will be set to read-only but you can copy them back to the M: Drive, your OneDrive @ UF, or Google Drive provided you have set that up with the Kumo service.
Please keep in mind that the UFApps M:Drive is designed for files actively being used and not intended to be a long-term storage solution. OneDrive @ UF and Google Drive are the preferred long term storage solutions for use in UFApps.
To improve access to UFApps and related services like UFApps for Research, we are implementing a new login gateway for accessing your available apps and desktops. The URL for the new login gateway is https://login.apps.ufl.edu/. We will migrate all of the existing services to the new login gateway over the next several weeks.
On 06/08/2021,we will begin by migrating the UFApps for Students and Faculty service. At that time, we request you begin using the new URL to login. For a period of time, anyone using the current gateway (https://apps.ufl.edu/), will be redirected to the new gateway (https://login.apps.ufl.edu/) to ensure a smooth transition.
When configuring your Citrix Workspace App for Windows, Mac, Linux or Mobile device please use “login.apps.ufl.edu”. Tutorials can be viewed in our FAQs (https://info.apps.ufl.edu/faq/).
UFApps changes and announcements are published via two methods, the UFApps Announce MS Teams group and the UFAPPS-ANNOUNCE-L e-mail list.
