  • CD-ROM disk
    • JumpStart files
  • Institutional File Space (IFS): Backup up JumpStart files
storage media used in mgt 240 excel jumpstart9
Storage Media Used in Mgt 240 Excel JumpStart
  • Your computer’s hard disk
    • Used while working on JumpStart files that have been copied to your computer’s desktop
    • Why were you instructed not to work on the file directly on the CD?
    • This is also where the Excel application files are located
    • This is also where your operating system is permanently stored

Institutional File Space
  • Every student, faculty, and staff member gets their own personal IFS space
    • Students
      • 500 MB NetFile
      • 50-200 MB AFS
    • Can request more space if needed by filling out a quota increase form
  • Can access files from multiple locations
  • Can easily share files with others
accessing institutional file space
Accessing Institutional File Space
  • Mapping a drive to someone else’s AFS space
    • Example: Mapping Prof. Ballou’s Public AFS folder
