Dropbox Rollout

Access to Dropbox will be rolled out over time by department. You will be notified by email when your group will be migrated and when your account has been created. If you don’t already have an existing Dropbox account using your “@gsu.edu” email address, you’ll simply activate your university Dropbox account by logging in following the directions sent in your welcome to Dropbox email, using your CampusID and password. If you already have an existing Dropbox account registered with your “@gsu.edu” campus email address, you’ll be able to choose whether to continue to associate existing content with your “@gsu.edu” account by merging the accounts or migrate your existing Dropbox content to a new account using a personal email address after you log in with your CampusID and password the first time. Additionally, as on-campus, hosted H:// drive accounts are being deprecated, we encourage you to transfer existing H:// drive content to your Dropbox as part of this process (if you have content you would like to continue access to.)
