Always keep a copy of important files in more than one place. If you accidentally delete part/all of a file that is stored on OneDrive or in PFS, or a file becomes corrupted, you may not be able to get it back. Either keep a copy on portable media, or on your own computer or email it to yourself.
If you work with corporate documents, or documents that need to be shared with your colleagues you can use your Departmental Shared Storage area. By convention, this appears as drive i: on staff PCs.
We recommend that you use this area to store documents you need to share with colleagues, rather than copying them to cloud-based services such as Dropbox. Material of this type is usually sensitive, and cloud-based storage providers may not meet EU Data Protection requirements.
Please contact the IT Service Desk on ext. 2000 for further advice about this and other storage options such as public folders.
Files deleted from your 'My Documents' folder will go into your Recycle Bin, so you can recover a file if you delete it by accident. There is an exception to this, which is if you access your 'My Documents' folder by choosing the 'U:' drive (home on prs-store2.unv.wlv.ac.uk) from the list under My Computer (Computer on a Windows 7 PC). Any file deleted from the 'U:' drive will not go into the Recycle Bin.
