In May, Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect.

The GDPR brings strong data privacy and protection rules across Europe for EU citizens.

Microsoft and the Windows Sysinternals team are committed to complying with the GDPR. Hence, to ensure we can fully meet the the GDPR obligations we will be migrating Windows Sysinternals forums posts to the Microsoft Technet Forums platform. The Technet Forums platform is committed to being fully GDPR compliant by May.

ACTION REQUIRED - The Technet Forum profiles are backed by Microsoft Accounts. In order to properly migrate Post author information you will need to ensure you have a valid Technet Forum profile.

You can do this by navigating to https://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/ and clicking Login and logging in with your Microsoft Account to create your Technet Forums profile, if you haven't already done so. Your Windows Sysinternals Forum account email address *must* match that of your Microsoft Account/Technet Forum profile.

NOTE, if you do not create a profile and ensure a matching email address, we will *NOT* be able to attribute the post to the author correctly in the Technet Forums. The post will be attributed to Guest/Anonymous author.

The forum posts will be migrated in late-April. The exact time window of migration snapshot is to be announced.

Thank you,
The Windows Sysinternals Team
