Are files on your USB drive at risk?

Are files on your USB drive at risk?

Do you regularly connect a USB drive to University classroom PCs?  

If you do, please be aware that any virus-infected file on your USB drive that is identified by the University’s anti-virus software as being high risk will be automatically deleted from your device.  

  • You will not see a warning before this happens.
  • You will not be given the option to quarantine high risk files.  

This is due to recent changes to the University’s anti-virus software and subsequent changes to policy.  

Please make sure you have an additional backup of any important documents/files. For guidance, see our fact sheet – Backing up your work.
