When you get a new computer or you are imaged your computer is reformatted and a fresh copy of windows is installed. You then just go to the network folder to find your files that you backed up.

Clearly identify your work space

Please tape a business card to the Dell monitor at each station to clearly identify whose station it is.

The IT department may have temp workers helping with the roll out so we would appreciate if you could all tape your business card to the front of your monitor before we arrive to do the work so there is no mistake who is in which office.
