There are a few different options available to you if you are unfortunate enough to loose some of your data depending on what hardware you have and what level access you have on your computer. Windows 7 has the option to restore previous versions (although this may not be enabled by default). Previous versions are either backup copies—copies of files and folders that you back up by using the Back Up Files wizard, or shadow copies—copies of files and folders that Windows automatically saves as part of a restore point (Shadow copies can be copies of files on your computer or shared files on a computer on a network.). You can use previous versions of files to restore files that you accidentally modified or deleted, or that were damaged. Depending on the type of file or folder, you can open, save to a different location, or restore a previous version. To learn more about this, click this link.

Sidmouth College uses a programme called PaperCut to manage all 60 networked printers and photocopiers in and around the school. Students are given ‘£3.00’ of printer credit a week which enables them to print 30 A4 Black & White sheets or 6 A4 colour sheets to available devices. If students require more printing credit to print out school work or coursework then they can see their teacher who can give them printing vouchers – these come in ‘£10.00’ denominations and pupils can add these to their printing account. To do this, they can click ‘Details…’ on the balance screen which appears in the top right hand corner of their screen when they log-on. This will then prompt for their log on details again – once signed in, select ‘Redeem card’ and enter the unique alphnumeric sequence displayed on the card.
