Work that is only stored in one place (eg on a USB stick, or on the hard drive of your laptop) is at risk of being corrupted or lost. If you open a document from email and edit it without saving it to your filestore, it may be lost when you log off. We strongly recommend that you use one of the centrally provided services to save your work.
We've made it easy for you to access your work, wherever you are. Save your work to Google Drive so that you can access it anywhere on any device connected to the internet; use our Virtual Desktop Service (VDS) to log on to your desktop from home, with access to software and filestore; log onto the Virtual Private Network (VPN) to map your filestore and access restricted web apps.
