Please note that the OneDrive memory capacity provided by the company Microsoft is a cloud memory. The data cannot be restored by BOKU IT in case of loss. We also do not have any influence on the actual data storage location. We therefore recommend you consider this factor (as is the case with all cloud memory providers), especially with regards to privacy regulations or possible contractual agreements (such as data handling for third-party research). In general, we recommend you solely use mobile data memory (such as cell phones, computers, notebooks, tablets, hard drives, sticks, etc.) for data worthy of protection when it includes encryption software (such as BitLocker for Windows or FileVault for Mac OS X). For students, unfortunately, it is NOT possible to purchase operation systems or other Microsoft products via the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. Please contact Microsoft directly or turn to specialist shops.
