ITS is migrating from Xythos to Dropbox. Xythos and Dropbox will be running concurrently. Xythos will be decommissioned at the end of the fiscal year (6/30/2017).

Visit https://dropbox.fairfield.edu/ for Dropbox at Fairfield info, Dropbox guides & tutorials, and more.

Your Personal Xythos folder will NOT be moved to Dropbox by ITS.  You will be responsible for transferring the data over to Dropbox, but the process is very easy. See below.

Departmental Xythos folders will be moved to Dropbox by ITS in early 2017.

If you have a Faculty Web Page (ex. faculty.fairfield.edu/NetID), ITS will reach out to you and migrate it to Dropbox.

Please note: Dropbox for Education accounts require an @fairfield.edu email address. This means if you currently have a personal Dropbox account that uses an @fairfield.edu email address and you want to keep your personal account separate, you may want to go ahead and change it to a non-work related email address. This will make the Dropbox for Education setup process easier. To learn how to change the address now, please click this link: https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/202
