Below you'll find a series of possible scenarios and best practices for addressing each scenario.
You are collaborating with several students on a project and you lose time by having to write and send emails to team members to ask them to send you the files you need. You are worried that you are collecting and creating so many files for the project that you may end up exceeding the storage capacity on your laptop.
You recorded some interviews for an oral history project, but some people you interviewed wanted to remain anonymous. You often worry that you may forget your computer on the bus and that someone might access this sensitive data before you have time to transcribe and delete the audio files.
There are several ways you can secure files on your computer.
You are working on a shared document with a team. You realize someone made and saved changes that overwrote data you need. No one can access an earlier version, and you fear the information is now lost.
Last summer your computer crashed and you lost all the data from a summer research project. You are worried it could happen again because all the files for a current project are stored only on your computer.
