Instructions for backing up files on a MacBook.  Note that ideally you are already using Google Backup & Sync or File Stream to handle the majority of file management and backup.

Step-by-step Guide

Open up Google Drive and click on the red New button on the left side of the screen.

Click on "File Upload".

Click on:

  • Your username (same as your student ID)

  • Pictures

  • Photo Booth Library OR Photos Library

Any other files?

You will need to follow the same process for any other files that you want to save that have not already been backed up to Google Drive.

Ex. Documents on your desktop, documents folder, etc.

If you need additional assistance, please stop by the technology help desk at your building.
