Holiday Weekend

Please turn off your desktops and laptops in your room for the holiday weekend! Thanks!

Backup Your Data!

Please remember to also keep a copy of your documents somewhere else besides your desktop in case of a hard drive failure.

Remember the 3-2-1
Rule of Backups


Have 3 copies of your important files (for example, your original on your computer, another copy on a USB hard drive, and a third copy backed up online)


Use 2 different types of media to back up the files (for example, backing up to both a hard drive and to optical media, like a DVD. This one is about not having all your eggs in one type of backup basket. However, since hard drives are much easier to automate and use, you might bend the rules and use the rule below as a different type of media.)


Store 1 copy offsite (for example, with Google Drive)
