Alert!

If you have any content stored on our MICA Photo Computers (especially “desktop” files), you need to come in so you can remove it from the computers before Tech Services wipes the computers clean. To be clear…if you leave these files on the computers and they are unprotected, you will lose all your content.

We are planning to have the IT team in here next week (any time after August 8th) to begin reformatting all the machines in M080, the large DPL, and the small DPL. Remove your content quickly or face the probability that you will lose what you have stored on these computers. Thank you for your cooperation!
