HOW TO ACCESS SERVER & SAVE WORK HERE

This course provides server space to back up your digital work. You may choose to also purchase your own hard drive to back up work.

Establish good work habits! Always save one copy of your work to SAVE WORK HERE and a second copy to the SERVER that allows you to access your files remotely.

STEP 1: SAVE WORK HERE

Use the desktop folder "SAVE WORK HERE," to store digital files on your lab desktop. Files left on the desktop of computers in 328 and 132 will be erased. To safeguard your work-always move it to a folder titled with your name within SAVE WORK HERE.
