Transition from BuckeyeBox to OneDrive

Ohio State is retiring its BuckeyeBox service. OCIO is using a tool called SkySync to copy files from BuckeyeBox data to OneDrive. When your department or business unit begins to migrate, OCIO will make a copy of files you own in BuckeyeBox and place them in OneDrive. You will then have read-only access to your files in BuckeyeBox. They are working with IT support and departmental leaders to determine the best time for CFAES departments to migrate. In advance of migration, you will receive communication with dates and resources specific to your migration.

  • You do not need to migrate your own files.
  • After migration, read-only file copies will remain in BuckeyeBox until shutdown.
  • Training material and other information is available at

It is recommended to wait for OCIO to copy files to OneDrive for you. However, if you do want to get started on OneDrive or Teams – or simply want more information about the decision, OCIO has published information with guidance on how to get started early.
