IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Windows Explorer - right click drive - Tools - Error Checking. It won't run until you reboot. You may be able to delete the old profile.
