UW-Madison Box - Preserve your personal Box account and data
Audience: Individuals who created a personal Box account using their UW-Madison email address.
Background: Select personal Box accounts that were created using a email@example.com or subdomain (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org) email address will be converted into a managed UW-Madison Box account to ensure data shared with a UW-Madison email address is protected by the UW-Madison Box license agreement.
This document lists options for either preserving your personal Box account or your personal Box account data before the account is converted into a managed UW-Madison Box account.

Option 2: Preserve personal Box account data
Select this option if you would like your personal Box account to be converted into a managed UW-Madison Box account but you do not want your personal data moved into the managed account.
Transfer ownership of your personal Box files from your current personal Box account that uses a UW-Madison email address to a newly created personal Box account that uses a personal email address. View instructions here.
