Introduction

It is typically best practice to save important files in locations that are backed up, available on multiple devices, and secure. Saving files to your local device (such as your C: drive) can result those files being lost or otherwise compromised.


The District recommends saving your files in one of three locations:

  • your network drive (H: drive)
  • your OneDrive
  • your Google Drive
