Housekeeping Reminders for Employees Safeguarding Important Files
To ensure that our Help Desk staff are available to help as many employees as possible per day, we follow a "limited troubleshooting" rule. In most cases, if we are unable to resolve a computer problem within a reasonable amount of time, we will re-image the computer − erase the contents of the hard drive and reinstall all software. Visit the ITS Employee Help Desk Web page for more on the "re-imaging rule of thumb."

GroupWise Cleanup
Please help us keep GroupWise running efficiently by deleting any unneeded messages. Don't forget your Sent Items and Trash folders, which may be consuming a substantial amount of network file space if they contain messages with file attachments. Remember that employee e-mail accounts do have a 400MB space limit. To see details about the size of your mailbox, click the words "Mailbox Size" along the bottom of your GroupWise window.
