Reminder: Use BUFiles

By , March 24, 2008 10:09 am

This is your regular reminder to use BU Files for saving documents, papers, class projects, etc.

Every student (and employee) has space on BUFiles for saving these kinds of files. This is typically mapped to your H: drive, so if you go to any lab computer and click on My Computer, the H: drive should point to your space on BU Files, which is entitled with your Butler username.

Do NOT save important documents to the “Default” or to “My Documents” on the computer you’re sitting at.

ALWAYS make sure you’re saving things to BUFiles (or H:).

Local computers get reimaged, have profiles deleted, etc., causing your files to disappear. This will NOT happen if you save your things on BUFiles. Plus, they will then be accessible from another computer on campus.

Every semester it seems we have a few students in the library who lose documents because they were not saving them to BUFiles. We hope you will read this and act on it before writing your big papers this semester.

If you have any questions about where to save files when you are using library computers, please ask at the Reference Desk.
