Saving your work

Do not save any documents or data to the desktop of a SHU PC or laptop as you will automatically lose these files when you log out. To comply with the Data Protection policy, if you store University personal data other than you own (eg, survey responses) on a USB storage device or other removable storage such as CDs or DVDs then it must be encrypted.

HomeDrive

The safest location to save your files is your HomeDrive (F:). This is your personal network space. This space is limited to 100mb so is not suitable for storing large files. 

In your HomeDrive is a folder called "My Documents" which is where you store your work; you can create sub-folders in here to keep your files organised.

You can view your HomeDrive (F:) by clicking on Computer on the Desktop. This will open an explorer window displaying your HomeDrive (F) and also any other USB device you have plugged in. Double click any drive to open.

USB

You can connect your own devices (MP3 players, USB sticks, cameras) to SHU PCS, as long as they do not require further software installing. Remember to remove it when you log out!
