   If you have any questions regarding how to back up any item, please call the Computing Help Desk (x3333).

   Files and Preferences
   I have backed up all my files, including Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDFs, email attachments, and
   all other files I have created or modified myself.
         Files saved to my Desktop.

       Files saved to my Documents/My Documents folder or elsewhere on my computer.

       I have a backed up any custom dictionaries, macros, templates, Adobe CS settings, or other
        customized items.

   Browser Bookmarks/Favorites
       I have backed up my bookmarks/favorites from web browsers I use regularly: Safari, Internet Explorer,
        Firefox, Chrome, etc.
   Data Security
       I have backed up critical files to a file server (e.g. NTM, Vault) or have a second backup in a different
         location.

       I have checked my backup on another computer, to make sure that files open properly and are not
        shortcuts.
   Hardware, Special Applications & Drivers
       If I sync my computer with a mobile device (e.g. smartphone, iPad, etc.), I have synced my device and
        made a copy of the backup.

       If my computer is being reimaged or I’m receiving a new computer, I have located installers for
        software that will not be pre-installed on my computer. For a list of which software will be installed,
        see:

          Windows XP: http://web.wellesley.edu/web/Dept/LT/Computing/Windows/facstaffxp-software.psml
          Windows 7: http://web.wellesley.edu/web/Dept/LT/Computing/Windows/facstaff-software.psml
          Macintosh: http://web.wellesley.edu/web/Dept/LT/Computing/Macs/facstaff-software.psml

       If I have other special software, fonts, and images, I have the original discs to reinstall them, or know
        where to find the installer online.

       I have the supplemental software and drivers needed for any scanners and local printers.
