REMINDER: SLAIS IT Labs – Deletion of all “I: Drive” storage accounts

As part of the ongoing restructuring of the SLAIS IT Labs infrastructure, students will no longer have access to personal storage space [usually called the I: drive].  These are the accounts that can only be accessed using one of the networked PC workstations in the Terrace and Kitimat labs.

If you are a continuing student and have any data you wish to keep stored in your I: drive space you must download it to a personal storage device or send it to your personal FTP space by September 30.  We will begin deleting all student I: drive storage accounts and the contents of those accounts after the 30th.  Once the account is gone so is the stored data and there is no way to retrieve it, so be sure and save what you want by the 30th.  Note that no changes are being made to student FTP accounts at this time.

If you are doing an out-of-town Co-op this term or for some other reason will not be on campus before September 30 and wish to save your account contents please email Susie Stephenson with your login name [same as your personal FTP login user name].  Do this before September 30.

Going forward you should always have a personal storage device [such as a thumb drive] with you when working on the PC workstations in the labs.  Remember that each time one of the workstations is restarted all data and changes made by users are erased and the workstation returns to its original status and configuration.

Printing has also been changed for the labs, please see the attached for information on how to print in the labs. You can find this in the resource section for students on the SLAIS webpage.
