M DRIVE IS THE NEW H DRIVE
Your H drive is now called your M drive. One thing you need to understand about our new system is that your My Documents folder on your computer exactly matches your M drive. They are the same thing, the same location. What you put in one place will also show in the other place. This impacts you in a couple of ways:
  1. If you use a laptop at home, your My Document files will not be available. The folder will appear blank. Any files you want to use at home, you should save to your desktop or a jump drive. Or log into your portal. All documents which are in your M drive show up in the files section on your portal. This is very cool. Easy access to all your files from anywhere. Do you remember how to log into the portal? Information about the portal is number 8 on the Teacher Tech Training Website: http://thinkmedia.wikispaces.com/tech-outlookcalendars.
  2. It also affects iTunes. By default iTunes lives in your My Music folder in My Documents. Very quickly, your allotted 10GB of space will get used up! The network engineer team is moving your default iTunes folder to the root of your C drive. This way you can download as many podcasts and music, and other videos as you want. If you need help with anything relating to iTunes, submit a work order, http://helpdesk.graniteschools.org and we can make sure that you are working like you did before the new system.

ADDING SOFTWARE

  1. Click Start>All Programs> and look for the LanDesk Management folder. Open the Software Deployment Portal. Many software programs have been easily packaged so that you do not need to install serial numbers or click next or do anything. For example, things like…Google Earth, CS3, Interwrite, etc. are all created for you. Just click the deploy portal.
  2. Another place you can find installers in inside what is called your S Drive. It is a shares folder. S for Shared. You can create folders in this locations, and save documents into the shared folder, so that other can access what you want them to have. Do not install LanSchool Teacher without talking to Rachel. There are default setting which need to be changed in order to install it properly.
  3. You are welcome to install your own software from your CD’s or download programs from the internet to install. And finally, if you need help with anything, please let me know, by submitting a work order. http://helpdesk.graniteschools.org.
