Backing up your data is essential to your peace of mind and to the smooth running of the college.

If you routinely save files to your local hard drive (C:), be sure to also keep a copy of all important files on your personal network drive (H:) or your department's shared drive (P:). The files on Smith's networked drives are backed up nightly, so if you should accidentally delete a file or a file becomes corrupted, the file can be restored from backup. And if your computer's hard drive should ever fail, your files will still be safe.

For instructions on using your network drive or other devices to back up your files, see:

Note: If your department uses specialized software, please be sure to send the original disks or CD-ROMs to Desktop Technology Services in Stoddard Annex for off-site storage.
