End of the Year Clean-Up Questions – just ask 1 – Use a flash drive to Backup “P” and “H” Drives 2 – “C” Drive – if you are moving to another room, your desktop computer stays behind and so will your “C” drive files. Use a flash drive to save your files on the “C” drive and transfer to your desktop. Delete the files from your old room desktop “C” drive. 3– Use an old cotton t-shirt to wipe off screen and to cover monitor during the summer. Be sure the monitor is off before covering.
