in the policy are details on specialized software in Teaching Computer

** S drive not available? To mount just the public drives (S,X), go
to Start > Log Off and the computer will refresh with the public drives
***Memory Stick issues? If you can't read your memory stick on the

all the varieties of software and permissions/privileges required to
unlock memory sticks that have been protected in this way.
