A. Please go to
Where is the best place to save my documents?
A. The best place to save your work is on your your SkyDrive.
Back up on your Z drive. There is an icon under "my computer"
called Z: Drive. Double clicking on this icon will open your Z:
Drive -- your personal storage space, identified by your username,
which you can access from any computer on campus.
can't I get my document off my floppy disk?
A. Do not use floppies. They are obsolete. (See next question)
Chances are the floppy disk is damaged. We suggest using your
SkyDrive for documents. For safty, if you need to take a document
home with you, you can e-mail it to yourself as an attachment
(and go home and log on to e-mail and open the attachment)
How do I get stuff back and forth from home to campus?
A. Store it on your SkyDrive. Another option is you can e-mail
it to yourself as an attachment (and go home and log on to e-mail
and open the attachment) Students have their SkyDrive, which is
part of thier school email package. ITS recommends investing in
a USB memory stick. You can get a fair amount of transportable
memory (If a gig of memory is plenty) for less than $50. You can
get these sticks at any computer store or on-line. Buyer
beware! Some of these USB memory sticks install their
own software. This is a proprietary software that is not needed;
but it will prevent you from using your memory stick in a secure
environment, for UWC does not allow persons to install their own
software. In other words, your drive will not "map."

How do I listen to audio in the labs?
A. You can bring in your own headphones, or you can check them
out from the Library or Media Services. There is a head phone
jack on the front of the CPU chasis, which is under the desk.
What is a Z: Drive?
A. It is a network drive that is backed up every night. You can
use it on any computer on campus. Always save your work in your
Z: drive, as it is much more reliable than a floppy disk. It will
stay in that folder until you delete it. Each student has a 50
MB limit on the Z: drive. (Faculty are mapped to the "H"
Why am I getting a message that says I can't receive anymore
A. When you delete something from your Inbox, it isn't really
deleted. It puts it into a Deleted Items box. Also, when you send
an email it keeps a copy for you in your Sent Items box. If you
want the Sent Items gone, delete them, and then go into Deleted
Items and delete the messages from that folder as well. Once you
clear out some messages, you will again be able to receive messages.
Note you can send up to 50 mbs. Also be aware that a single
attachment can eat up your email space.
Why did I get an email from the Administrator saying my inbox
A. Refer to question above. What this means is that your email
account has too many emails. Try deleting your sent items folder
or your deleted items folder. You also will have to download all
attachements, then delete the message with the attachment.
How do I check my school email?
A. You go to http://baraboo.uwc.edu/,
