In the past I have stepped away from my computer and, when I came back, I had to log back in but my files were still on the computer. I did the same thing today and they are gone! Views: 6
After 10 minutes of inactivity, you will be logged out automatically. After automatic logoff, there is an additional 5 minutes before the machine disconnects from your account. After this time, your files will be gone forever.
It is not a good idea to leave yourself logged into a computer that is unattended and you don't want to lose your files. The best option if you do not have external media with you is to save your files to your UVM server space. There is a Zoo Files link on the desktop, which can be used to drag and drop files. You can also use webfiles.uvm.edu (which shows the content of your Zoo Files) from any browser to download and upload your files.
