Do you use Google Drive to collect student work or files? Have students shared files with you via Google Drive? Do you need to preserve these files in the long-term and/or for accreditation or reporting purposes?

Make sure to copy these files or download them! Additionally, it is easy to move a folder or file to another location or Drive after making the copy.

There are a few reasons for this.

First, Students only have access to their Canisius Google Accounts for a limited amount of time after they graduate. After this time is up, their Google Drive information gets deleted.

Second, Students may edit or delete these files after the class is finished. While they may have good backup practices, it’s also possible that the shared file is the only copy.
