Saving your work

When working in the IT Services computer rooms you may save your work temporarily onto the computer you are working on. However, once you log off that computer any files saved to it may be automatically removed. For that reason it is important, before logging off, that you copy your data elsewhere, as outlined below.

MyZone - Drive app

All Trinity students are provided with an online data storage facility, called 'Drive', as part of their MyZone account ( Here you can store data and can access it from any device with internet access. More information on using this service is available on our MyZone web page.

Removable media - USB key

In addition to saving your data into your MyZone account it is also important that you save a second copy of any important work to removable media such as a USB key or external hard drive.
