Next year all high school students will be issued new school laptops.  To prepare for new devices, if you want to save any files, downloads, photos, etc that are on your current laptop, you MUST follow the directions below to save to Google Drive or you can save to a USB drive (not provided by the school). Please also note that you can select multiple files at the same time keep in mind if they are larger (like photos) be prepared for it to take some time for the upload to complete. While the selected file is uploading your computer needs to remain open and connected to wifi. 


*Please note, backing up your data needs to happen prior to computer turn-in (date is not yet determined). I will send another reminder as I know more about computer turn-in dates and times. 


Saving Files to Google Drive: (unlimited amount of storage space)

Step 1: Log into your @grinnell-k12.org email using a Chrome browser.

Step 2: Click on the App Launcher (see Step 2 in the photo below).

Step 3: Click on Drive to open your Google Drive (see Step 3 in the photo below).




Step 4: To make it easier to find items you may want to create folder(s) in Drive first, so you can easily group the files you drag in.


To Add a Folder:

On the left side, under the word Drive, click New, then click Folder, then name the folder, then click Create.


To Upload Files: 

Open Finder and simply click on the file(s) you want to save and drag it into the folder you created in Drive or drag anywhere in Drive and in the bottom right corner it will show the upload process. 

*To make this easier you may need to make your chrome browser smaller so you can see your browser and the finder window at the same time. 


Backing Up Bookmarks in Chrome:

To ensure bookmarks are backed up on Chrome, you must be signed into Chrome with your @grinnell-k12.org email address and make sure it is syncing. Go to the top right corner of the browser and click on your image (in photo Grinnell Tiger). See photo below.
