FAQ

Public Email (Yahoo, etc.)
UConn Health is currently blocking access to public email accounts such as Yahoo from our networks. Access to these accounts is still available through the UConnHealth-Guest wireless network.

Saving Documents
When the PC is rebooted, all changes (files saved to it, browser changes, etc.) will be reversed. There is no method of recovering files once a PC has been rebooted.  All important files should be saved to external media such as a USB drive. Files needed for only a short time, such as PDF’s to be attached to emails, can be saved to the PC.

Floppy Drive
These PCs do not have a floppy drive. An external USB floppy drive may be borrowed from the Information Desk.
