RESOLVED: Unable to Access Adobe Products

Update, 2:45pm: We’re very happy to report that Adobe has resolved the issue and that community members should again be able to access all of their usual Adobe products. Thank you so much for your patience while we worked through this situation.

If you continue to experience issues, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Help Desk.


This morning, when working with Adobe products, community members started receiving a message stating that “This feature is not included in your current Acrobat license”.

LITS staff have been working with our vendor since receiving the other notices last week and were assured that all of our licenses are in place. We are working with them again now and have indicated that this is a work-stopping issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and are working to resolve things as quickly as possible.

We will continue to update you as we get more information. Please contact the Help Desk with any questions: help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440.

H: Drive File Restore Services Unavailable

Please note that H: drive file restore is temporarily unavailable. Everything in your H: drive will remain there, but LITS will not be able to retrieve any items once you’ve deleted them from your H: drive. We are actively working to resolve this issue. In the meantime, you may want to consider backing up important and/or frequently used items to another storage solution like OneDrive.

You can also back up files to the S: drive if they contain sensitive information. Please see our Data Handling Policy at https://www.brynmawr.edu/inside/offices-services/library-information-technology-services/about/policies/data-handling-policy to determine which items need to go to the S: drive.

For assistance with data back up and other questions, contact the Help Desk at help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440

Messages about Adobe Apps Expiring

Starting today, community members may receive a message that their Adobe license has expired. We are currently working with our vendor to resolve this and to ensure that no one loses access.

In the meantime, all Adobe apps should still be functioning as normal. Please feel free to click “OK” on the error message if it pops up.

Please contact the Help Desk with any questions or concerns: help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440.

Update: Widespread Zoom Outage

Updated 9/15 at 11:30 AM:

Zoom appears to be working again, at least locally. Users across the country are still reporting errors, so you may find that you still have trouble connecting with folks who are not at Bryn Mawr.


Zoom is currently unavailable for many community members at Bryn Mawr, and across the country.

Teams may be a good alternative in the meantime. We will post updates here when we know more.

Contact the Help Desk with questions: help@brynmawr.edu or 610-526-7440.
