Please save your documents when using Macs, but not on the Mac!

Alert from the CIT:
All lab Macintoshes (this includes all of the Macs in Academic Commons and library spaces) as well as the loaner laptops from all four libraries have DeepFreeze software installed on them. Once the computers are shutdown or restarted, all user data is removed. We cannot recover any documents after restart. Please save and email yourselves a copy of any document that you are working on at least once and when using a laptop, plug the power cable in.

In other words, DO NOT SAVE YOUR DOCUMENTS ANYWHERE ON THE COMPUTER. Options include
  • Emailing to yourself
  • Saving in Stulocker
  • Saving on a flash drive
