CIS Help: Don't Lose Your Term Paper!
Want to make your finals week a lot less stressful? Make sure to back up and store your important projects and term papers in more than one place. Each quarter we see sad students attempting to rescue their major papers which are saved in *only* one place: on either a bad floppy disk or a crashed computer hard drive. Avoid this mess and enjoy your finals week by: 1) backing up your important data on external storage media such as CD-RWs and flash/jump drives; and 2) storing your most important documents in your NetStore space on one of our secure servers. For details on NetStore, check out our Help pages at http://www.spu.edu/CISHelpDesk/netstore. And to make sure your computer won't misbehave during finals, consider getting a computer tune-up from our Help@Home program. Just go to www.spu.edu/help-at-home to request a visit.
