Note to Current Students
The computers in the Multimedia lab are shared by many students and erased each semester. As such, please do not rely these machines to store your class projects and always make a back-up copy. One problem you might encounter while making a back-up is that many external storage devices (hard drives, SD cards, USB “thumb” drives) are often pre-formatted out of the box to work with Windows computers. The best way to fix this is through OSX’s Disk Utility application.
