Storage and Backups
Backing up files
There are many ways to backup your data at the University:
- Save your data to your personal U: Drive (My Documents)
- Burn a CD of your data
- Use a USB drive or other removable device.
NB. It is vital that staff members ensure their valuable data is backed up or a computer failure will be a disaster.
Staff members can also backup to the Shared Work W: Drive (though this can be accessed by your whole workgroup).
U: Drive Information
Staff can save their work files to their hard-drive and U drive. It is advisable to save important files to your U drive. Should your computer fail the files on your U drive will have been backed up for you.
How much space do I have allocated on my U: drive?
- Individual Staff: 5 gigabytes
