The IT Department will do its best to help you with any computer related problem. We can help remove viruses from your computer and try to recover data should your computer fail.
However your data is your responsibility, please make sure you have multiple sources of backup from which to restore your academic data. Imagine the worst that can happen at the worst possible time, be assured that will happen to at least one person a year. Make plans now so that should that happen to be you then your data is easily recoverable from an up to date backup.
Also make sure you have the necessary media and software keys readily available to enable us to reinstall your operating system and applications should your hard drive or SSD fail and need to be replaced.
The IT Department (S5) has stock of the following items which you can buy from us, this is added to your college bill.
