Yes! You can save documents (Save As function) to your H drive (which is labeled with your student ID number). The files will remain safely stored, even after you log off.
Note: You can now access your H drive from home too! Log in with the Virtual Desktop application to access and save to your H drive at home!
A second option is to check out a USB from the Library Desk for 3 days. Or, use your own purchased USB drive to save to.
Another option would be to save the document/file to your Desktop and then email a copy to yourself.
NEVER accept the computer default saving location (My Documents) to save directly to the computer's documents folder. Once you log off the computer, any work that you had saved there will be gone.
