Getting started with Linux

Central storage for files

  • Put your files on our networked file storage (a.k.a. samba or central storage):
  • Ask your supervisor for the appropriate location.
  • Files stored on your local system (or personal laptop) are not backed up!
    • On Linux systems, most files are created on central storage by default.
  • If you lose a file, or want to verify which areas are backed up, please submit a ServiceRequest.


Policies and Guidelines

Think before you click!

We see fraudulent emails every day, and they can be quite sophisticated, even appearing to come from someone you know. Make sure you are on a Cornell website before typing in your Cornell password. When in doubt:

If you accidentally clicked on a bad link or attachment, contact us immediately at service-classe@cornell.edu.
