 USB Storage devices info and usage:

IF USING HOME COMPUTER:

  • ONE USB storage device.
  • Home computer hard drive.
    • Create a folder to store all of this course's downloaded student data files and assignments' files.
      e.g. C:\AVC\course#\  or create the folders within your MyDocuments folder
       
    • If directly saving all work in progress files and completed files to home computer hard drive, ALWAYS backup to USB storage device after each work session.
       
    • If directly saving all work in progress files and completed files to USB storage device , ALWAYS backup to home computer hard drive after each work session.

IF WORKING ONLY AT AVC OPEN LABS:

  • ONE USB storage device as PRIMARY device. 
    • Directly save all work in progress files and completed files to PRIMARY.
      • Create a folder to store all of this course's downloaded student data files and assignments' files.
        e.g. C:\AVC\course#\
         
  • SECOND USB storage device to BACKUP all files after each work session.
    • Create a folder to store all of this course's downloaded student data files and assignments' files.
      e.g. C:\AVC\course#\
       
  • Use TWO USB ports on the computer to Drop & Drag (or Copy & Paste) the files from the PRIMARY device to the BACKUP device.

!! NEVER work on the BACKUP device.  Always BackUp from PRIMARY device to BACKUP device at end of each work session !!

USE OF HOME COMPUTER

  • You MUST be running an undated ANTIVIRUS PROGRAM, AND you MUST KEEP the ANTIVIRUS DEFINITION FILES UPDATED if you wish to use your home computer for this course. 

  • See System Requirements course page for info about Norton Antivirus or McAfee Antivirus software.
     

  • I recommend creating the following folder structure, or path, on your hard drive:                                      C:\AVC\course#\

  • Bring the USB storage device to class.

  • Periodically Kathy may ask to view the files. And, if you have questions or problems, the only way to resolve them would be to view the files

ALWAYS BACKUP!!  

  • EACH TIME, when you've finished a lab or class session, make a copy of the PRIMARY device to the appropriate BACKUP (destination) disk(s):
