Use the Data Usage Monitoring Tool to view your data usage as calculated by ACCC. The Data Usage Monitoring Tool is the recommended method for monitoring your bandwidth usage on the UIC networks. Please note that although ACCC makes every effort to maintain the availability of its machines, the inability to access the monitor is not a valid reason for exceeding your data usage. Consult UIC Wireless and Res-Net Policy for the current data usage limit and other restrictions.

This page explains how to restore both individual files and restoring an entire disk for files that have been backed up using the ACCC network backup client.

Selecting Files to Restore

We keep multiple copies of each file in the ADSM backups. So the first decision that you have to make, after you decide which files or folders you want to restore is whether you want to restore the most recent backup copy or the backup from some past date.

Service: Listserv

​To unsubscribe from a UIC listserv, send a specially formatted message or use the web interface (requires setting up a listserv password).

As of December 20, 2014, UIC's Blackboard login system was upgraded to a single sign-on with other UIC apps like Google Apps, Lynda, Box, and now Blackboard Learn.

As a result of this change, the .bb accounts that faculty and staff used to preview their course sites from a student’s view were deactivated. Instead of the .bb accounts, the new Student Preview feature will automatically generate a student user within Blackboard Learn courses, thus eliminating the need for two separate accounts.

While you are using Microsoft Outlook, you may see a pop-up window that asks you to restart Outlook because an Exchange administrator has made a change. This message occurs when an Exchange administrator has moved your mailbox from one database to another in order to optimize the back end infrastructure.

When a student does not register for a Spring or Fall term, their UIC NetID is marked for expiration and enters a grace period. The grace period lasts throughout the term during which the student did not register for classes, and ends sometime in the middle of the next term. For example, if a student registered for Spring 2011, but did not register for Fall 2011, their NetID will remain in grace period throughout Fall and into Spring 2012.
