some guidelines for choosing your storage
It's fact that all storage systems might break anytime without warning. Departmental personnels have few options to choose when you think how and where you store your digital data.
Separate personal and work data
All computer resources at university are provided for work or study purposes, keep your personal data at home, at least do not store it using university resources. Examples of data which doesn't belong to university computer systems.
- Music files
- holiday photos and videos
- Internet loadable media files
Identify type of work related data
Choosing right place for your data is easier if you can identify type of your data ja sort it little bit.
- Only meant for my eyes and nobody else is interested for them.
- Project data which is available only for specified persons
- Project data which is available to anyone in our department
