[Resolved] Essential M drive server maintenance

Filed under: File storage, PC Labs, [Resolved], [Scheduled], [Service Alert] — Trevor Smith @ 3:18 pm

One of our M drive servers (isslx108) will be undergoing essential maintenance work on Tuesday 15th May between the hours of 6am and 7am. This will mean that the M drives of staff and students stored on the server will be unavailable during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and will endeavour to keep downtime to a minimum whilst this essential work is carried out.


The scheduled work was completed by 0640 and all services are now available again.

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.

Changes to ZendTo service – new features and improvements

Filed under: News — Dan Jolly @ 3:39 pm

On Monday 14 May between 9am and 10am, we will be updating our large file sharing service, ZendTo,

The update includes a number of improvements:

  • Increased size of files handled from 2G to 5G
  • Cleaner user interface
  • Supports drag and drop for dropping off files
  • Can more easily see what you have dropped off or awaiting pickup
  • You can now send an external user a drop-off files request email rather than tell them to go to zendto.essex.ac.uk
  • Now checks dropped off files for viruses

The service will be unavailable for a short period of time while the update takes place. Any old data will be automatically migrated to thew version.
