Everyone Backup and Move Forward

The 31st of March was World Backup Day, an annual reminder for us to back up our data! At school,
backing up can be as simple as saving a copy of everything to your "T" drive (or "S" drive for students) under your name. That server where your data lives gets backed up frequently in the cloud (on off-site servers).

So, do you save to your T (or S) drive? PLEASE do!  We hate giving you the hairy eyeball and the "too bad, so sad" speech when your hard drive dies and you tell us all of your files were saved there and nowhere else.

Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box are alternative backup solutions that I personally use.  Read this excellent article for more tips and let me know immediately if you need help backing up! And don't forget to backup the data on your home computer and other devices as well.
