It is very important to create backups of important information. Using instructions provided by the Stevens Help Desk, backing up your personal documents, emails, and other electronic information is easy.
Backing up Personal Files
All faculty and undergraduate students are given storage space on storage01 for personal use such as backup.
Due to the limited amount of space offered it is recommended that you use an external hard drive or USB drive to store your backup data.
How do I backup my personal files if using my Stevens storage space?
You can access your personal storage space on the storage01 server by mapping a network drive or mounting the drive.
Your personal drive share is \\storage01\username
How do I backup my personal files if using my external hard drive or USB drive?
You can find your external hard drive or USB drive by double clicking the " My Computer" icon. Simply copy the files you wish to backup to the drive. For specific instructions with E-mail and Calendars, please see below.
Backing up Email
Through tools such as Outlook (2003, 2007, 2010) backing up your Stevens Email is simple.
