Using your H: drive is a necessity, for 4 reasons:
You will need it for future work here at school
You need to understand how to maneuver around different setups at school and in the business environment
So you can show us your work in its original form, without having to carry (or buy) a memory stick or card (or emailing it to yourself).
You can get at your files from anywhere on (or off) campus, not just your own computer,
so you can do your work, even if you are out of town or your PC is broken.
Accessing your H: drive from off campus
