Saving Files

Where to Save Files

DO NOT SAVE FILES on your desktop.

If you are a student working on a computer in a campus lab, you are provided with 30 MB of network storage space. You access your storage space by saving your file under "My Documents." You can also save your work on a USB flash drive or in cloud-based storage such as Dropbox.

If you are faculty or staff, save files to your personal network folder on the M drive. Files saved to your PC's harddrive do not get backed up by IT. If you do save files there, make sure to copy your files to your M drive folder on a regular basis. If you don’t have a folder, contact the HelpDesk to request that a folder be created.
