==Mac==
 
 
 
===Documents===
 
Word, Excel, PowerPoint, iWork, PDFs, few pictures, should '''all go to the Tigercat server''' - but don't use Tigercat for storing large files (see below).
 
 
 
===iPhoto and Pictures===
 
These need to be backed up either to Muskrat or to an external hard disk borrowed from circ. BOTH of these options are temporary!
 
 
 
===iMovie, FinalCut, iDVD and other larger movie files===
 
These need to be backed up either to Muskrat or with an external hard disk borrowed from circ. BOTH of these options are temporary!
 
 
 
===AddressBook===
 
We recommend migrating to Entourage. We do not support AddressBook. There's a drag and drop procedure for importing AddressBook data to Entourage's server-side address list. (''Hint: Using drag-and-drop to import contacts, settings, etc. from one program to another is really useful on a Mac! Actually, sometimes it seems to be the only way to import settings.'')
 
 
 
===Safari Bookmarks===

===Firefox Bookmarks===
 
Bookmarks can be easily backed up by going to the '''Bookmarks''' menu -> '''Organize Bookmarks''' and exporting bookmarks to HTML. I'm not sure how to back up saved passwords, history, etc. other than by manually copying the Firefox user data directory.
 
 
 
 
 
==PC==
 
 
 
===Internet Explorer Bookmarks===
 
* Back up "Favorites" to file: '''File''' menu -> '''Import and Export''' (in IE7, you might need to right-click on the toolbar to show the File menu)
 
* Migrate to Firefox: Firefox has a built-in import feature that will fetch IE's bookmarks.
 
 
 
==Linux==
 
All user-specific files and settings are in the /home/username directory. While some minor information ''in'' that directory may not be important to the user, you can know with 100% certainty that all user files and data are inside that directory.
