Planned Maintenance: Redirect local Desktop directory – Ref No. 62194

Updated Thursday 2nd May

This work has been successfully completed. This work did not include a change to Managed Desktop for Laptops.

Work is scheduled on: Monday, 29th April, 2013 between 08.00 and 08:15

Currently when a Managed Desktop User saves a file to the Desktop it is stored locally on the PC. If the PC or hard disk is broken, or needs replacing, there is potential for this data to be lost. To enhance recovery options, we intend to redirect the local Desktop directory on the Managed Desktop to Users H:\Desktop.

Thereafter, any files saved to your Desktop will be saved to your H:\ drive and automatically backed up.

Before this work takes place all Managed Desktop Users should file or move anything they want to keep on their Desktop to their H:\ drive Desktop folder.

For more information and instructions see attached document Managed Desktop redirect information
