Reminder: Back up that paper!

As the spring 2011 semester winds down, deadlines are looming for papers, projects, etc. While we always hope that technology is available, there are many examples of lost papers in the final seconds — just before turning it in. This happens for many reasons (but never at an opportune time) including a failed computer, failed hard drive, power surge, network outage, and a host of other reasons.

So, back up those projects! Available options include:

  • an external hard drive
  • a USB flash/thumb drive
  • a shared drive
