We recommend that users bring their own personal storage devices such as Flash Drive, External Hard Drive, or have access to a personal Cloud Storage service where they can save/export their projects before leaving the Creative Studio. The Library is unable to store projects locally on Creative Studio Computers. Each time the Creative Studio computers are shut down or restarted, all personal data, including project files, are permanently erased and cannot be recovered.
