How do I run a Antivirus Scan on my MDS PC
How should I move files and folders around on the S: drive?
Please note if you wish to move files/folders around on the S: drive we recommend you use the following method:
- Right hand click on the files/folders
- Select 'Copy'
- In the destination folder right hand click and select 'Paste'
The original files/folders should then be deleted to avoid any confusion caused by multiple copies.
If you use the drag-and-drop feature of Windows Explorer this will result in incorrect security permissions being set on the copied files - and other users not being able to access the files/folders you have moved.Please note that this is a feature of the way Windows XP file permissions work, and as such cannot be changed by ITS.
