2017-07-05: New server TempStorage4

The Microscope Facility has a new server for its users: TempStorage4 (>3x bigger & >6x faster). Please delete your shortcut to the old server and create a shortcut to the new one at \\\TempStorage4 for Windows and // for Macs (see instructions if you've forgotten how). The login and password to the new server is the same as before. Please copy your data from the old server (accessible as a read-only subdirectory 'TempStorage3' on TempStorage4) to the new server.

TempStorage3 Offline/to Retire
TempStorage3 is offline while we bring up the new Server (Tempstorage4), which is >3x bigger and >6x faster. You will need to edit your shortcuts to the new folder (Windows: "\\\Tempstorage4"; Mac: ""), noting that the 's' is lowercase. The login/password is the same as before for TempStorage3, but will no longer be accessible.

If you don't know how to create such shortcuts, see FastFacts/Network.

Direct access to TempStorage3 (SMB1 or FTP) will no longer be available. Your old data will still be accessible through the new server as a linked folder called 'TempStorage3' and you can copy your old data folder from the old server to the new server. Eventually, TempStorage3 will shut down and retire (linked folder will disappear), but you'll have at least one month to transfer your data.
