Network Drives: (available while on the school network)

T:      Your Departmental drive. Everyone in the Department to which you belong will have access.
X:      A junk transfer save drive, anyone in the school has access to this drive to read and save. It is purged every 60 days or so, so do not keep anything in there for long.
U:      School public data drive. School information, pictures, forms etc... Not everyone can save to this drive.

Flash portable USB drives (Pen Drives, Thumb Drives, and Keychain Drives)
USB flash drives and/or hard drives can be very convenient for carrying data back and forth from home. If your documents are not saved on a network drive or a portable drive and your computer's hard drive goes out, there may be no way to recover those files.
We highly recommend a 2 GB flash drive or bigger.

Log Off every computer you use!!!
Your account id and password identifies who you are. If someone performs actions under your account, you are held liable.
