When working on your assignment or project you should make sure to regularly save your work to ensure you have a backup copy.

You should NEVER save your work just on the desktop of your machine as this will be lost when you log off the machine.  Instead you should use one of the University approved storage options.

1. OneDrive cloud storage which is linked to your Aston email account.  This is the most versatile storage method as it can be accessed from anywhere with internet access.

2. Your H drive folder on the university storage system.  This can only be accessed on-campus (For more information see the IT help page)

You may also want to save a copy on your own USB device.  If so please remember to label it as yours with your name or student number in case you lose it
