Saving Data on Computers

Data is not saved on the lab computers. To ensure our computers run efficiently, we perform regular maintenance that includes keeping the computers free of all data other than system files. Back-up your data frequently while using the lab computers, and ensure you have an appropriate storage and/or back-up method for your files (Eg. Use a USB key or email materials to yourself).
