Catbert surrenders ninth life

For years, students have been safe from the wrath of a dropped laptop, water-damaged motherboards, or stolen computers by saving important files on Northwest’s Catbert server (N: drive). Now, however, students are urged to remove files from this storage space. Thirty megabytes of storage will be terminated for all students on October 28, meaning that unless moved, files on the N: drive will disappear in about a month.

Do not fear, for the school is not leaving students high and dry. Along with the conversion to Outlook Live, students are provided with a new storage option. Windows Live SkyDrive offers 25GB of storage to students, opening up almost 1000 times the space. For instructions on how to move files to this new and more reliable storage option, check out this post. If you have any other questions or need help transferring your files, contact your PERT or the Client Computing Help Desk at 660-562-1634.
