ISS recommends periodically backing a laptop's Home Directory to ensure you preserve your data. You can start by cleaning up, sort, and deleting old photos, music, movies, documents, and other files first since it will significantly increase the performance of your laptop. Then, backup and archive. Once laptops are turned in, all files will be erased by ISS and are not recoverable.
We’ve prepared articles that will help you backup and archive your files:
- Backup Your Home Folder on a Mac Laptop or Desktop
- Backup your web browser bookmarks -
- Backup photos. Move your Photos library to save space on your Mac
- Archive your music. The best way to archive iTunes music depends on variables such as iTunes store purchases, sharing, iPhone/iPod use, etc. You can use the iTunes Help menu.
