Note about Adobe Cloud Storage:

All faculty/staff are recommended to use current enterprise storage solutions, i.e. Microsoft OneDrive, for storing any and all content developed through Adobe Creative Cloud. Although Adobe offers a cloud storage service, there are limited to no controls available for data retention or retrieval, so in the event a user becomes ineligible for Adobe licenses, they will immediately lose access to Adobe Cloud Storage, and OIT will not be able to assist the user or the department with data retrieval.
