This year, we're changing the way you store your iMovie and Garageband projects at the Technology Solutions Center - to make it easier for you. Before, you had to sit at the same iMac in the lab to work on your project, and if two people had to use the same iMac, it wasn't possible. Now, you'll be able to work on your project from any iMac in the lab! It works by storing your project files on a server, instead of the iMac itself. Please follow these directions to learn how to backup and restore your projects to ensure you'll be able to access them from anywhere.
HOW DOES IT WORK/HOW CAN I USE IT?
Because the TSCSHARE media drive is intended for use in only the TSC lab, we must create share folders for users on a per-project basis. We ask that you fill out a simple web form at least 48 hours before you'll need access to the drive.
You'll be asked to login with your EagleNet username and password. Then, you will be directed to a page where you will need to fill out some information about your project including the purpose, the start and end dates of your project, and any team members. Including team members allows more than one person in the group access to the storage space in case someone gets sick or must be absent from the group meeting.
Notice: Your project will be PERMANENTLY DELETED 1 week after the project end date you provide on the form. Please plan to make arrangements with TSC Management prior to the deletion date if you would like to keep a copy of your project. Tiffanie Tran, TSC Project Developer, can transfer your files onto a flash drive you provide if you'd like to keep your project files.
Your space will be set up within 48 hours, often-times earlier. Regardless, you will receive a confirmation email when the folder has been activated.
From any TSC Lab computer using Mac OSX,
If you're using the drive with iMovie or Garageband, be sure to read the Wiki articles on Using the TSC Storage Drive with iMovie or Using the TSC Storage Drive with Garageband to ensure you're copying and restoring files correctly.
If you're hesitant about using the drive, please ask the student Lab Assistant working at the front desk.
