VLab 2.0: Saving Files

This article has not been updated recently and may contain dated material.

General Information

In VLab 2.0, you are responsible for saving your work to an appropriate location before exiting (other than the selected desktop within LSU's Virtual Lab). All work that is saved to the desktop within the Virtual Lab will be deleted upon exiting. To prevent deletion, users can save their work to a USB drive connected to their own computer or use a variety of online data services.

Saving to a USB Drive

To save to a USB drive, connect it to the port on your machine and the Vlab client will automatically detect it. When choosing to save a file, you will see the drive listed in the Computer tab on the left side of the Save dialog box.
