Alternate Storage Locations

You can also use other storage locations to store your files. If you have T drive access and the files are work related then you can save the files to the T common drive.  Keep in mind that who ever has access to those same folders, will have access to these files. You can also you external devices to store data. Just plug the external drive into the computer and save/move the files to the corresponding drive under My Computer.
