Safe Computing

Backup your data

Backup your data periodically to protect it from unexpected hardware and software trouble. In addition to keeping copies of your important files on your hard drive, you can keep copies on:

  • CDs
  • USB thumb drives  
  • Your Google Drive from your Hamline Google account.
  • Your Hamline University personal server space (FileAccess).
  • Paper copies of critical papers and documents
  • It is also important to keep within reach a copy of the installation media for all critical software, hardware driver sets, and your operating system of choice.
