Backing up Files


It is imperative that you know how to backup the documents and files you have created on your MacBook.  You should backup your files on a regular basis, but especially before you turn in your MacBook for the Summer.  Your MacBook will be re-imaged over the Summer.  ALL of your files will be erased! 

Follow the link below to view a video on how to backup folders to your network folder.

You may only backup your school related documents to the school network location.  Do not backup your personal music, photos, and movie files to the network.

Before you backup, make sure you are connected to the network. To do this make sure your student number appears over your network folder in your dock.  If you see a question mark instead of that folder, you will need to log out and log back in at school.

Open your home folder (with the house icon).  Then drag your files and folders that contain school work and projects to your Network Folder on your dock.

You may backup all of your files to a personal flash drive, or external hard drive.  The easiest way to backup everything is to navigate to the home folder (with the house icon).  Drag that folder to the flash drive or external drive.  The backup device must have enough free space to hold all of these files. If it is not, you will need to be selective in what you back up, or use a larger flash or hard drive.

If you need additional assistance with this process, please visit the Help Desk.  Any of the Help Desk personnel will be happy to help.
