What is happening?
Included further below is a copy of a message that many on campus will have received. This message is about the MySharePoint locally hosted OneDrive service and does not impact SharePoint.uwaterloo.ca departmental sites.
The SharePoint Server admins turned on the 'site' clean-up feature for MySharePoint.uwaterloo.ca to prepare for integrating our SharePoint services with cloud features.
If someone has not used their MySharePoint personal site for over 90 days, they will get this notification. They have 28 days of reminders and then it will get deleted. This is a standard SharePoint canned message.
The email you may have received is:

Otherwise this site collection, including all of its subsites, might be deleted.
If this site collection is no longer needed, you can delete it by going tohttps://mysharepoint.uwaterloo.ca/personal/j2mathes/_layouts/settings.aspx, and selecting "Delete this site".
Please note - When a SharePoint Web site collection is deleted, all Web sites, content and information which were part of the site collection are completely erased. The site can only be restored if a backup exists.
