Protect Your Data
Regularly backup your coursework and important personal documents, pictures, and music library to an external drive or web-based storage. Here are a few recommendations:

  • Short-term backups: A USB keychain drive can store backup copies of your documents in progress. The drawback is that they are easy to lose.
  • Long-term backups: USB-connected, external hard drive of equal or greater capacity than your laptop's hard drive. The drawback is that they are not made to be portable.
  • Web-based storage solution such as your Case Google Drive.
  • Log on to any law school computer and back up school-related documents to the "My Documents" folder. Your "My Documents" folder is backed up nightly.
  • Visit the Software Center for information on purchasing Carbonite backup services.
