  •  Free online backup, file sync and sharing tools

    Box, Dropbox, MozyHome, and ZumoDrive are some of the best, free options for backing up, sharing, and synchronizing your files across multiple computers and devices. Each has at least 1GB of storage and offers paid upgrade options if you need more space.
  •  Make Use of your J: Drive

    All SCU faculty, staff and currents students with a Novell account have their own network drive. If you are logged in to the Novell network on campus, go to My Computer and look under Network Drives for your Novell username in the drive name. After the drive name is usually (J:).

    Use your J: drive to back up important files or save work that you access from different computers (such as a lab computer). It's perfect for when you forget to bring a USB flash drive.
