Planned P:Drive outage

(10 July 2015)

Due to the Kilburn Building Data Centre move, personal network storage space (P:Drive or 'My Documents) will be inaccessible from 5pm on Friday 17 July, with the service expected to return on the afternoon of Saturday 18 July. During this time you will not be able to access files stored on these servers.

Managed Desktop computers – including student PC clusters - will have reduced functionality; you will be able to log in and use the basic software applications, but you will not have access to documents on your P:Drive or other files on your desktop.

Other services unavailable during this work:

  • The Video Library Service
  • Library services such as eScholar
  • Library digitisation project
  • Roaming profiles
  • Whitworth Art Gallery electronic collections system
  • Manchester Museum collections management
  • Some shared network storage areas
