Hello!  We are planning a major Filr upgrade on March 7th, starting at 7am.  Filr will not be accessible during this period.  The significant benefits of this upgrade are listed below!

If you have no idea what Filr is, we have info here: https://its.ptsem.edu/connect/storage ... If Filr sounds useful to you, go check it out and sign up for training (below) if you’d like.

You will still be able to access your files either via the h: or files on your local system.  You will not be able to sync or use the Filr web interface during the upgrade process.

If you foresee some conflict during this time period, where you will need full Filr access, please let me know asap.  We anticipated being able to work around any circumstance.

The on-site support team will be on “high alert” to assist with any Filr questions or issues during and after the upgrade – just call 609-497-7812 or email help.desk@ptsem.edu.

Wendy has scheduled updated filr training classes for the following week, schedule and registration links for the training is below.

We’ll have various reminds and updates next week.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Take care! --Bill
