Important: Login to Novell on Monday, June 7
Preparations for the Novell to Microsoft upgrade require that all staff members login to Novell on Monday, June 7. A small program will be installed on your computer that will copy the “My Documents” folder from your computer to a location on the network.
You should also back up your files yourself using the processes outlined on the technology end of year checklist. This backup process is designed to serve as an added precaution for your most important files.
Because of the large size of the “My Videos” and “My Music” folders, these folders will not be backed up using this process. Most of these files appear to be personal music and videos. Please be sure to back up those files yourself if you want to keep them.
If you have documents in other locations that you want backed up by the District, these files need to be moved into your “My Documents” folder, too.
Once the program is installed, it will continue to back up the “My Documents” folder for you each time the computer is logged into Novell.
Again, these backup procedures are in addition to the ones on the technology end of year checklist.
Working together, we can make sure that the transition from Novell to Microsoft goes smoothly.
Please check MISD TechNotes throughout the summer for more information about technology upgrades.
