DataPort gives you access to Bethel Web resources. Your staff ID is your email ID. Your staff password is the last four digits of your social security number and your date of birth written as one long number. Do not add leading zeros to the day or month and do not add “19″ to the year. For example: A social security number of 755-29-4583 and a date of birth of September 4, 1967 would translate into a staff id of 45839467.
If you have questions or comments, email Tim Goss.
- Move all your files and data folders from the desktop or other location into your My Documents folder. This is the default location that Microsoft applications store files, though other programs may use different locations. Having all your files in one place helps insure that you back them all up and don’t miss any. Be sure to save your Internet Explorer favorites (see below for instructions) and any archived email folders here, too. You do not need to save any shortcuts (icons with a small arrow in the bottom left hand corner) or any programs.
- Open the My Computer icon on your desktop. You will see an icon for ‘yourusername on ‘district4\staff_folders ‘ (p:) . This is your personal network folder. Open your My Documents folder. Shrink this window so it takes up half of your screen and you can see the My Computer window at the same time.
- In the open My Documents window, highlight one file. Next press the CTRL key and “a” key at the same time; this will select all the files in that folder. Drag one of the selected files from that folder onto the top of your personal network folder, it should then become highlighted.
- You may see a message “This folder already contains a folder named “foldername” and explaining that files or folders with that same name will be replaced. You’ll be asked if you still wish to copy it. If the files on your computer are newer than the ones in your network folder – they most likely are – you can click on the Yes to All button.
- You may see a message advising that the folder already contains a file named “filename”, and asking if you would like to replace it. You can click on the Yes to All button.
- You should see a progress bar as the files are copied. The bar will go away when the copying is finished. Close both windows.
- VERY IMPORTANT! Once your hard drive is erased or computer removed, the files will be lost forever. Be sure to verify that your files are in your network folder! Reopen the My Computer icon on your desktop. Open the icon for ‘yourusername on ‘district4\staff_folders ‘ (p:) . You should see all your the files and folders.
Saving Favorites in Internet Explorer
1. Open IE.
2. Go to FILE on the menu bar, select IMPORT and EXPORT from the drop down menu.
3. The Import/Export Wizard window will open. Select NEXT.
4. Select Export Favorites, then NEXT.
5. Highlight the top folder called Favorites, then click NEXT.
6. Be sure the Export to a file or address is selected. It will by default point to your My Documents folder. Click NEXT.
7. Click FINISH. Verify that your My Documents folder now contains a file called bookmark
Here’s how to install and set up Karen’s Replicator, a free program that will automatically back up your files:
1. Go to http://www.karenware.com
2. On the far left menu, click on Free Programs.
3. Scroll down and select “Replicator”.
4. On the next screen, scroll down and select Karen’s Replicator to download it.
5. When prompted, click on Open.
6. Click on Set Up.
7. Click on Okay.
8. Click on the large button to start the set up.
9. The software should now be installed.
10. Go to the Start menu, All Programs and Karen’s Tools and right click on Replicator and select Create Shortcut.
11. Go back into the same menu and drag the shortcut to your desktop.
12. Open Replicator and click on Create New Job.
13. Give the job a title “Your name Backup”.
14. For the source folder, select “My Documents”.
15. For the destination folder, select your personal folder on the network.
16. Click on Schedule.
17. Select once a month if you plan on manually backing up each day (that’s what I do). You can select once a day, but your computer will need to be on at the time you backup and you’ll need to have closed all files when backing up as it won’t back up a file that is in active use.
