[Service Alert] Deleted items reappearing in Box

Filed under: File storage, [Resolved], [Service Alert] — Kit Lindsley @ 2:32 pm

Resolved

Everything is back to normal and we will continue monitoring. If you’re still having trouble please let the IT Helpdesk know.

 

Investigating

Due to an administrative error, deleted items in Box over the last 30 days have been restored to their original location.

This means that you may be noticing previously deleted items reappearing in your Box folders. Duplicate items that have the same name as an existing item will have a number at the end of it, for example (1).

Unfortunately, this error cannot be undone automatically, so please check and re-delete any items you no longer need.

Please accept our apologies if this affects you.

Good news – off campus access has been restored. Please accept our apologies for any trouble this may have caused you today. We are continuing to monitor the situation.

Update 2.15pm

We are still working on things. We appreciate your patience while we get this fixed.

Workaround for Moodle – go to moodle.essex.ac.uk and choose “Don’t have an Essex ID?” underneath the Login button and use your normal Essex username and password to login.

Workaround for Email – if you already have the Office 365 email app on your phone or tablet this should still work.

Update, 10.50am

A workaround for staff who are working from home or off campus, or on campus using a mobile device, is to use VPN and Remote Desktop.

For students, all services are still accessible from one of our many computers on campus.

Update, 10.30am

Sorry to be holding you up today. Please know our teams are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.
