The most reliable method to save your work is to use a USB thumb drive. We highly recommend this method, as the best way to prevent losing your work.

If you have emailed a file to yourself and want to edit it, you must save it to a USB drive or to our computer before making any changes. If you do not do this, it will not save your changes.

Warning:  If you are relying on saving the file to our computers, there is a risk involved. If the computer has to be restarted, the file will be erased and will not be retrievable. This is why we recommend that you use a USB thumb drive.


UCSB students can also save files to U-Storage space. To do this, see the directions below:
