  • Approved to share virtually all files, except those containing credit cards, social security numbers, bank account numbers, driver’s license numbers, and HIPAA-related information.

New Box Preview Experience

Box is rolling-out a new version of the Box Preview experience. Starting Friday, 11/15/13, users of the Notre Dame Box service will be upgraded to the new Box Preview. No action is required, the update is automatic. It will take several weeks before all users in the Notre Dame community are using the new Box Preview. The current Box Preview will continue to work until one is upgraded. Whether one is using the current or new Box Preview, there is no other impact to using the Notre Dame Box service.
