Sunday Maintenance Reminder

Every Sunday from 12am until 12pm all Systems (e-mail, Banner, wireless, etc.) will be intermittently unavailable while important maintenance and updates are performed.


Weekly Maintenance – Reminder            

Please log off your computer when leaving for the day every Thursday, but do not power it off.  This will allow updates to be sent down to your computer on Friday after 12:00am.  If you turn your computer off and leave it off overnight on Thursday, shortly after turning it back on, your computer will restart in order to install and apply any updates. If you leave your computer logged in Thursday night into Friday, you may lose any unsaved data you were working on when the computer restarts.

Why Save To Your Personal Netshare?

Protect your data by making sure to save to your personal netshare, commonly known as your “M drive” or other network shares.  The benefits are 1) it is accessible from both on and off campus, 2) it is backed up and 3) we can verify whether or not data has been compromised on netshares in the event your computer is infected with a virus.  Laptop users:  you are encouraged to use your M drive as the primary location for your data.  If you need to work on files off campus and have no access to a wireless network, make a local copy on your laptop.  For more information click on the following links:
