A Defense Information Systems Agency office has temporarily halted two features of a cloud-based storage service that is designed for unclassified Defense Department information network users.

DISA said Thursday its cloud storage program management office paused the milDrive platform’s local workstation backup and personal storage table file synchronization functions as the PMO needs to shift resources to manage its new user onboarding process and operational data intake.

The agency noted the milDrive portal retains data previously backed up in the client system.

According to DISA, storage users will receive a red “X” notification in the Windows file explorer on the milDrive folder’s PST files and an unsyncable file warning in the dashboard’s sync status.

The service is designed to help DoDIN users access unclassified information from a computer or a mobile device.
