Saving to Disk or Hard Drive Save in two places. Usually C or F (shared) drive along with Floppy or A drive. Whenever updating, always save to the same file, and click yes when asked if you want to overwrite the file. This will ensure all changes are saved. You DO NOT need to use a new disk every time you update or make changes to your website. Always, ALWAYS save regardless of the size of the change. Use the main (C) drive or (F) drive as your main source, and use your disk (A) as a backup and for Mrs. Cox

Left click your updated material in the right side of your screen (just once!) and drag it over, placing it into your name folder on the left hand side. A screen will come up asking if you want to replace the old file with the new. Click yes to all. You should see the file transfer taking place. Now, go to the internet and check your website. You will probably have to hit refresh to see the changes.
Problem Solving Tips for Updating Make sure your image has been dragged to your name file if it is a new image. Otherwise your image will not show up on the page. If you have tried everything, ASK FOR HELP! It usually only takes a few minutes to figure out the problem.
Some Reminders Remember to change your “updated on” date each time you make a change Check any new links to make sure they work. Mrs. Cox needs to see your disk each time you update, before it is republished.
