Title: Data Transfer Policy For Routine Computer Replacement
Applicable: Furman University Faculty and Staff
Contacts: The IT Service Center ext. 3277
Background: To ensure a common understanding between the faculty and staff and ITS during routine computer replacement, it has become necessary to standardize a local data storage location.
Policy: When transferring data to a replacement system, only data stored in the Documents and Settings directory on a Windows computer or the Users directory on a Macintosh computer will be transferred. If the faculty or staff member has been backing up to a “Time Machine” volume, they may also request a restore from the Time Machine volume to their new Macintosh.
