Where to Save on the MLC Network:
Caution: Do NOT save to the hard drives of MLC computers or you will lose your work!!!
If you save your documents to the WINDATA (I: drive) on the MLC Network so you can get at your work from any campus computer and your work will automatically be backed up for you on a nightly basis.
- To save your work select Save As, or simply press the F12 key, which will cause a Save As window similar to the one to the right to open.
- As usual, change the file name, document type, etc.
- The file needs to be saved to the correct drive, if you hope to get it back later. Most files saved by MLC faculty and students should be saved to the WINDATA (\\ACAD\VOL2\USERS\...) (I:) drive. (Caution: If you are working on a lab computer and save to the C: drive (local hard drive), your work will be lost once the computer is turned off.)
- Once you have selected the WINDATA...(I:) drive, you can select a particular folder to store your file in, create a new folder, or save directly to the I: drive.
