Quite often students only realise the importance of backing up work when it’s too late. Once an assignment or other important work is lost, it is usually gone forever! Some tips to ensure you don’t lose all your work:

  • keep multiple copies of work in different places (ie. Computer, external hard drives, Z:\ drive or email);
  • don’t keep the only copy of your work on a USB memory stick;
  • make a note of the name of the document you are saving, as well as the location;
  • while working ensure you save your documents regularly.
