Saving Your Favorites
There are a few steps to insure you do not lose important information when we must reimage your computer.
1. Make a list of any software that
will need to be reinstalled. The base image that we use will contain
Office, Adobe (Reader or Pro), Flash, Java, and Shockwave. Any software
other than that will need to be reinstalled after the imaging process
2. Save your favorites. Follow the directions below if you are unsure of how to save them.
3. If you are saving all of your
documents to the server you will not lose them. You will lose anything
saved to the desktop or the hard drive of the computer. So please move
anything from these two places to the server before giving us the go
ahead. Don't forget to check the My documents/My Pictures and do a spot
check to make sure they are saved to your Z drive as well.
To Save Your Favorites

folder named _old computer to start...that will give you a place to save
your favorites and things too...

Locate the folder named Favorites.
Right click on it and select copy -
Then go back to computer and browse to your Z drive -
Your Z Drive - (if you didn't create your _old computer folder you will
need to follow the directions below to create that folder now.)
Right click and select new - then select folder. I usually name this folder Old Computer.
click and select paste. The Favorites folder should appear in that
folder. It is then on the server and should not be lost in the imaging
have a lot of personal desktop shortcuts that you use, you can repeat
the process from above to save them. Instead of copying your Favorites
folder, copy your desktop folder. Then paste it is the _old computer
file as well.
