The TMU IT Service Desk is not responsible for any damage or loss of files resulting from the use of outside support.


Does TMU backup my computer files or provide a way to do that?

No, you are responsible for your computer files, so PLEASE make sure your important files are backed up on a regular basis. There are numerous solutions available, including local backup to an external hard drive and online backup services such as Google Drive and OneDrive.  If you have questions about this, come talk to us at the IT Service Desk.
