Are files stored on classroom computers backed up?

Files and software stored on the computers installed in the common use classrooms are not backed up.  This means that if there is a hardware or software failure on a classroom computer, files will not be recoverable.  For this reason, faculty are encouraged to utilize the Box.com service to store their files and be able to easily access them anywhere.  Alternatively, at least one USB port is provided for each classroom computer, to enable use of USB flash drives for portable file storage.  Please also note that after the end of a semester, all files and software are removed, so please be sure to back up any files you need to another storage solution.
